Saratoga-North Country Continuum of Care (SNC)

CARES serves as the Collaborative Applicant for the Saratoga-North Country Continuum of Care and partners with community members and local organizations to manage an effective Continuum.  The purpose of a Continuum is to:

  • Promote community wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness.
  • Provide funding for efforts by nonprofit providers, States, and local governments to quickly rehouse homeless individuals (including unaccompanied youth) and families while minimizing the trauma and dislocation caused to homeless individuals, families, and communities by homelessness.
  • Promote access to and effective utilization of mainstream programs for homeless individuals and families.
  • Optimize self-sufficiency among individuals and families experiencing homelessness.

Within this page, you will find detailed information about the Saratoga-North CoC, including Board Members and their contact information, by-laws, upcoming meetings, meeting agendas and recorded minutes, and other pertinent information.
