The Chicago Continuum of Care (CoC) and the early childhood system are engaging in discussions to ensure families with young children are accessing and receiving the housing and education services necessary to build a strong home. Leaders from the CoC and EC system would like to hear from the community on areas to strengthen the partnership and better integrate the two systems of care.

Community members (housing/service providers, educators, people with lived experience in homelessness, and interested members) are invited to participate in a forum hosted by All Chicago and the Ounce of Prevention Fund to provide an update on the current collaborative efforts and seek input regarding key focus areas.
