COVID-19 UPDATE

The need arose and you responded—with heartfelt thanks to you for your ongoing efforts to ensure that amid a national health crisis our state’s most vulnerable citizens were in safe, decent, and affordable housing to help prevent the spread of COVID. We still have much work to do as we continue our efforts to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and other infectious diseases among persons or families who are homeless or receiving homeless assistance. With your partnership, the dark days of this pandemic will become a little brighter.

Our Mission Statement

Our mission is to BRIDGE THE GAP between Communities, Landlords, Housing Developers and State and Federal Resources to provide Support, Housing and Services that strengthen and sustain the stability of home for those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Alabama Balance of State CoC (AL-507)

The Alabama Balance of State Continuum of Care (AL BoS CoC) was established in 2004 in order to assist rural communities in applying for Continuum of Care funding from U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

CoC funding serves homeless populations through Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH), Transitional Housing (TH), Rapid Re-Housing (RRH), Supportive Services, HMIS Projects, and is accessed through an annual application process. HUD requires specific governance and standards to access their funds, which are outlined in the Continuum of Care Program Interim Rule

The Alabama Balance of State Continuum of Care (AL BoS CoC) is a membership body comprised of community services providers who plans, develops and implements comprehensive and coordinated strategies to address homelessness in 42 Counties. The Alabama Balance of State CoC is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of individuals representing our Continuum’s diverse geography and homeless services focus.  The staff of the CoC assist recipients who receive HUD funded homelessness services with ensuring their programs meet CoC requirements, implement Coordinated Entry, and manage the day to day requirements of the CoC.

Purpose

Alabama Balance of State Continuum of Care Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) is administered by Service Point.

Racial Equity

The Alabama Balance of State Continuum of Care provides services to the homeless community with programs that provide shelter, homeless prevention and rapid rehousing, of homeless persons. We analyzed our Coordinated Entry and HMIS data to determine if all demographic groups were able to access services in equal proportion to their demographics in the homeless population. The data determined that homelessness effected persons of color at a higher rate than the baseline demographics of persons residing in our region. 

Racial Disparity 2019 Analysis

HUD has released a tool to help look at demographic data for our region. The Alabama Balance of State Continuum of Care number on the dashboard is AL-507.
