A successful Continuum of Care (CoC) should have a year-round planning process that is coordinated, inclusive and outcome-oriented. The Houston CoC has a governing body and a number of sub-committees or working groups. The membership of the governing body is decided through an open and democratic process and is representative of private, nonprofit and public sectors. The Houston-area Continuum of Care is governed by a Steering Committee composed of representatives from across the community.

Steering Committee members (as of January 2018) include:

  • Mike Temple, Chair – Gulf Coast Workforce Board
  • Kim Kornmayer, Vice Chair – The Harris Center
  • Marilynn Kindell, Secretary – Fort Bend County Community Development Department
  • Horace Allison – Harris County Housing Authority
  • Dr. Joanne Ducharme – Montgomery County Community Development Department
  • Tory Gunsolley – Houston Housing Authority
  • Kelli King-Jackson – The Simmons Foundation
