The Denton County Homeless Coalition (DCHC) is a working group of the Denton County Homelessness Leaderhip team that seeks to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of making homelessness rare, brief and non-recurring.
DCHC is comprised of representatives from nonprofit agencies, Denton County cities, school districts and other community stakeholders. The coalition works with the Texas Homeless Network (linked), the lead agency for Denton County's Continuum of Care (CoC), the Texas Balance of State (BoS). DCHC implements CoC strategies and Denton County and promotes collaborative strategies for state and federal homeless funding opportunities like the Emergency Solutions Grant (linked).
DCHC leads the annual census of people experiencing homelessnes, the Point-In-Time Count (linked), and governs the Denton County Homelessness Barriers Fund (linked).
