Meetings & Trainings
Steering Committee Meeting
CT BOS CoC Steering Committee is the planning body that coordinates efforts toward ending homelessness in the CT BOS region. The Steering Committee determines the local needs of people experiencing homelessness, implements strategic responses, educates the community about homelessness, provides training and support to providers of homeless services, establishes policies for projects operating in the CT BOS area, evaluates CoC and project performance, and implements continuous quality improvement strategies
CT BOS holds meetings for all CT BOS funded projects and interested members of the community at least semi-annually. Meetings are open to all persons interested in homelessness, including all CoC grantees and non-HUD funded housing and service providers as well as advocates, funders, consumers, universities, businesses, government agencies and other concerned citizens. The purpose of the meetings is to share information, provide resources and solicit feedback on how CT BOS can assist in providing the highest quality services and housing to people experiencing homelessness and other housing crises.
Reaching Home Coordinating Committee
The Reaching Home Coordinating Committee serves as the Board for the CT BOS Continuum of Care. Reaching Home is the state-wide campaign to build the political and civic will to prevent and end homelessness in Connecticut.
CT BOS convenes a series of trainings for CoC funded projects annually. Training topics include Housing First, Employment, Public Benefits, HUD Annual Progress Reports, and HUD and CoC Requirements.
