Homelessness is a complex issue, and effective efforts to prevent and end it require broad community participation. Citizens who care about the problem and become educated on the issues can advocate much more effectively for improved solutions. The Houston/Harris County Continuum of Care is composed of several volunteer committees and networking/task groups which have various roles and responsibilities.
