Scranton/Lackawanna County Continuum of Care

The Scranton/Lackawanna County Continuum of Care (CoC) is made up of representatives from local social service organizations that are committed to working together to improve services for the homeless in our region.  The members monitor the characteristics and situations of the homeless population, in order to identify strategies to prevent homelessness, rapidly house those who become homeless, and make homeless episodes as brief as possible.

As the lead agency of the CoC, UNC provides administrative support and technical assistance for the CoC and its functions.  UNC is responsible for the completion and submission of the Continuum of Care Consolidated Application, which brings funding for services to the region, as well as the Housing Inventory Chart and the Point in Time Count, which monitor current homeless individuals and resources in the region. For more information about the CoC, please contact Nathan Morgan, MNA, Program Director – Continuum of Care. Phone: 570-866-2233 Email: nmorgan@uncnepa.org.

For questions concerning the diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts (DEI), please contact the CoC’s Equity Advocate. The Equity Advocate role is supported by the CoC’s DEI Committee and serves to ensure equitable and inclusive services. Channel Kearse, Community Outreach Coordinator at the City of Scranton, serves as the current Equity Advocate. Channel can be contacted at (302) 729-3231 or channelek88@gmail.com. Email is preferred.
