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.

Education, Engagement & Action

Each year, volunteers help count men, women & children living on the streets during one night in January. The Homeless Count sets in motion a year full of education, engagement & action for the Pasadena Partnership to End Homelessness.

How it Works

Volunteers are sent in teams of 2-3 to an assigned zone on the night of Jan 23 (8-10 p.m.) & the morning of Jan 24 (6-8 a.m.). The same teams go out both times. Volunteers should be 18+ & must attend an orientation on Jan 17 or 18 (6:30-8:30 p.m).


Download one of our printable flyers below or share this opportunity on social media.


Each team (of 2-3 persons) will be assigned a zone to cover. Professional outreach teams will cover areas not located within the 17 zones. Maps of each of the zones are available below.
