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.

Faith Community Toolkit

The Faith Community Toolkit was developed by members of the Pasadena Partnership’s Faith Community Committee to support the faith community in helping to end homelessness in Pasadena.

The toolkit lays out four specific ways to achieve this goal and provides a flyer on how the faith community can help to connect community members who are homeless with housing. The four steps to helping to end homelessness include:

  1. Refer persons experiencing homelessness to permanent housing through the Coordinated Entry System (CES)
  2. Support and follow up with families being placed into housing
  3. Participate in the annual Homeless Count
  4. Join the Faith Community Committee
