Review for Okaloosa Walton Homeless Continuum Of Care Opportunity, Inc., Fort Walton Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As an elected official, I hold a seat on the Board of Directors. I've been aware of the Continuum of Care almost since its inception and have been amazed at the level of engagement the organization has had. In a county with multiple service providers, duplication of effort, and struggles to gain support and awareness the Continuum organization has made a tremendous difference. Service providers meet monthly to strategically plan, share information, discuss and pursue grants, plan fundraising activities, and efficiently meet the needs of homeless in our communities. Without the Continuum, there would be large chasms, not merely gaps in the services provided for the homeless population. Our commitment to meeting the needs is stronger and more focused as a result.

Role:  Board Member & I provide policy-level guidance to the organization.
