Welcome to FMCoC


The Fresno Madera Continuum of Care (FMCoC) is organized, meeting the requirements of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), to provide a comprehensive coordinated homeless housing and services delivery system called a continuum of care (CoC). The Fresno Madera Continuum of Care assists homeless persons to make the critical transition from homelessness to independent or supportive permanent housing; accessing education, health and mental health services, employment training, and life skills development. We are dedicated to increasing community awareness of homeless people and their problems; and the development and implementation of strategies to create permanent solutions to homelessness in our community.

News
 
On Tuesday, September 10, 2013, the Fresno County Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution in recognition of the Fresno Madera Continuum of Care's (FMCoC) efforts in increasing monthly housing placements for the homeless in Fresno County by 667%, from an average of 3 per month to 24 per month in 100 days through the 100,000 Homes Campaign.

The 100,000 Homes Campaign is a national movement of communities working together to find permanent homes for 100,000 of the country’s most vulnerable homeless individuals/families and Veterans before the end of 2015. A total of 269 Fresno and Madera County residents have been housed as a result of the FMCoC participation in the 100,000 Homes Campaign. In the last 100 days, 40 housing placements were made, which resulted in a 667% increase in housing placements for the chronically homeless and homeless veteran population.
