Since 1995, the Pasadena Partnership to End Homelessness has served as the lead agency for the Pasadena Continuum of Care. The Continuum of Care (CoC) is a planning process implemented by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in 1994. As one of the largest sources of federal funding for programs that address the needs of people who are homeless or at-risk of becoming homeless, HUD recognized the need for a more coordinated, collaborative, and community-driven approach to allocating resources to communities. The Continuum of Care process is the process by which communities identify local needs, develop strategies, and submit a single application to HUD for funding for programs designed to meet the needs in the community.

The Pasadena Partnership is governed by a Board of Directors composed of representatives from the community. In its role as the lead agency for the CoC, the Pasadena Partnership promotes integrated, community-wide strategies and plans to prevent and end homelessness; provides coordination among the numerous local organizations and initiatives that serve the homeless population, and manage the CoC’s single, comprehensive grant application to HUD for McKinney-Vento funding which includes Continuum of Care funds and State Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) funds.

Our Mission

The Pasadena Partnership to End Homelessness is dedicated to planning and developing evidence-based strategies to prevent and end homelessness in Pasadena, CA.

Renewal CoC Projects

Projects that were awarded Pasadena Continuum of Care (CoC) funding in 2018 are required to submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) to be included in the 2019 Pasadena CoC Application to HUD.

Renewal projects were awarded funding in a previous Continuum of Care competitive application process and are evaluated annually to determine how well they are performing and their ability to enhance the CoC’s system performance. All agencies with a project up for renewal in the 2019 CoC competition are required to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) application by 5:00 p.m. on July 29, 2019 to be considered for inclusion in the CoC application.
