Continuum of Care


The Chattanooga Regional Homeless Coalition (CRHC) serves as the lead agency of the Chattanooga/Southeast Tennessee (TN-500) Continuum of Care (CoC).  The CoC promotes the region wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness by advocating for people who are homeless, strategically planning for housing and services in the region, and collaborating with community partners.  We would love to have you join us in advocating for the current 600+ persons experiencing homelessness on any given night right here in the Chattanooga region by becoming a CRHC member.  Please visit the Membership tab of the website to join us. We thank you in advance for your support.


If you are a service provider in the homeless service system or even just a concerned citizen that wants to be more involved, you are also welcome to attend our monthly Advisory Board meetings.  We meet on the second Tuesday of every month (no December meeting). Contact us for more information and to be added to our Advisory Board email list.


The Continuum of Care is governed by a Council of members that are representative of the region and have the duty and responsibility to serve as guardians of the CoC’s mission.  Current Governing Council members are:
