TX BoS CoC General Meetings

CoC General Meetings are open to anyone who lives or works in the TX BoS CoC’s geographic area. Attendees learn about TX BoS CoC programs and policy priorities, upcoming events, local initiatives to end homelessness, best practices, and more!

Meetings are held monthly via webinar, so there’s no need to travel. Sign up to receive webinar invitations and other important BoS CoC news.

Local Homeless Coalitions

Local Homeless Coalitions are groups of organizations, individuals, and leaders interested in ending homelessness that meet face-to-face locally within TX Balance of State communities. LHCs make plans to address homelessness in their communities, pursue CoC goals, and lead local initiatives. There are approximately 25 Local Homeless Coalitions across the Texas Balance of State at this time. Use the map and contact list below to find the LHC closest to you. We recommend reaching out to the LHC’s primary contact person to ask for a meeting schedule. Don’t see an LHC near you? Fill out the form below to get started.

LHC Requirements

The TX BoS CoC’s LHC Toolkit provides resources for local groups to come together to address homelessness in a community; to continue developing as a collaboration; and to enhance their organizational capacity. The materials are posted on Google Drive, so they can be viewed or printed, as needed, and they will be updated regularly.

Part 1 is the toolkit guide that contains short introductions to approximately 30 topics and links to one-page briefs that further describe each topic. The briefs make up Part 2 of the Toolkit, and each brief includes links to additional resources. Part 3 contains general resources such as acronyms, definitions, and website information.
