CoC Steering Committee

**Please note that the Steering Committee is now referred to as the CoC Board as of 2014. For updated information on the CoC Board, including meetings and minutes, please refer to the Continuum of Care Board on this site

The 10-member CofC Steering Committee is comprised of both appointed and elected representatives. The Sonoma County Community Development Commission, the cities of Petaluma and Santa Rosa, the Sonoma County Task Force on the Homeless, United Way of the Wine Country, and the Community Foundation Sonoma County each have appointed representatives. The two largest Sonoma County homeless service provider non-profit agencies appoint one member each, currently Catholic Charities and the Committee on the Shelterless (COTS). Lastly, two private sector representatives are elected at-large from the membership of the CCPG every April. The Steering Committee plans the CCPG meetings, reviews committee reports and actions, formulates policy and takes any other actions necessary to accomplish the goals and action steps included in approved plans or per HUD directives. The Steering Committee invites typically senior management staff in local government with an interest in coordination of homeless services, to attend as ex officio members. See this link for a history of Adopted Policies.
