The Executive Committee of the CoC is now elected instead of appointed. Neighborhood Programs Manager Kerri Spear begins a year-long term as Chair of the CoC. Other business included a presentation from the Housing Authority of Champaign County regarding a timeline for a new proposed emergency family shelter. They also continue developing a monitoring tool and implementing “coordinated intake” for homeless service providers in the area.
