The Rest of the Story

NEW NAME FOR GROUP OVERSEEING FEDERAL FUNDS

After a bumpy 2015 in which its role, membership and effectiveness were called to account, the Volusia/Flagler Continuum of Care Committee has adopted a new name and added new members focused on increasing its role in resolving issues of homelessness in 2016.

In a press release (below) issued at the end of February, the group announced it had switched its name to Volusia/Flagler Commission on Homelessness. It will continue to receive staffing and Collaborative Applicant support from the Volusia/Flagler County Coalition for the Homeless and that entity’s new executive director Jeff White. The Commission is required by Federal Law to exist to prioritize and authorize expenditure of Federal funds of all kinds designated for homeless services in the two county area. At the same meeting approving the name change, Sam Willett was elected chair by the 24-member all volunteer group, which welcomed several new members described in its release.

Meetings of the Commission are open to the public. A schedule of its meetings and the press release can be found using these links.
