Blue Ridge Continuum of Care

The lead entity for the Blue Ridge Continuum of Care planning process is the Blue Ridge Interagency Council on Homelessness (formerly the Roanoke Valley Alleghany Regional Advisory Council on Homelessness). This leadership group includes twenty-one members, drawn from the general public, three local governments, mental health programs, state and federal programs, non-profit organizations, businesses, and colleges/universities throughout the Roanoke region, including a formerly homeless person. The Task Force serves as the facilitator and coordinator of our community’s efforts to prevent, treat, and end homelessness.
