Continuum of Care for Kane County

The Continuum of Care Kane County was created in 1999 and includes Kane County’s CDBG Program Area and the Cities of Aurora and Elgin. The Continuum consists of organizations and agencies that assist individuals and families that are at-risk of being homeless or are in various stages of homelessness. These social service agencies provide: (1) Outreach, Assessment and Intake; (2) Emergency Shelter; (3) Permanent Housing; (4) Permanent Supportive Housing; and (5) Supportive Services. The Continuum is responsible for the coordination of all of the social service agencies throughout the County to ensure that all gaps and overlaps in services are addressed.

The Continuum has participated in HUD’s annual SuperNOFA grant process since 1999. On the average the Continuum receives $1.5 million annually. The Continuum’s participation in the annual Continuum of Care grant process has allowed many agencies over the years to fund needed social service programs and increase the availability of affordable housing for families and individuals that are at-risk of being homeless or who are homeless throughout Kane County. 

Continuum of Care membership is open throughout the year, to agencies that serve Kane County's homeless residents and individuals that have an interest in ending homelessness in Kane County.  For more information about the Continuum of Care programs, please contact Julia Thavong, Project Manager for the Kane County Office of Community Reinvestment and Liaison for the Continuum of Care at  ThavongJulia@co.kane.il.us
