American Cancer Society Glenn County Relay For Life
The Health and Human Services Agency is partnering to support the American Cancer Society Glenn County Relay For Life “Survivor and Caregiver Recognition” event by having a “HHSA Team” at the event. Please come join us at the Willows High School track for a special half day Carnival event starting at 10:00am on Saturday, April 21, 2018 and support your fellow county employees and our team’s efforts to help raise awareness. The event will have activities for participants of all ages commencing with a 5K Fun/ Run/ Walk, carnival themed games throughout the day, lots of food, raffle prizes and fun. Please see attached flyer for the event, the 5K registration form and a request for survivor and caregiver information. A special recognition ceremony will conclude the event with a moment to honor the survivors, remember those that have lost their fight and to thank the Caregivers and the community that supports this cause.
This is a family friendly free event. We hope to see you at the track. HHSA supports this event in raising our community’s awareness of the importance of early detection and cancer screenings and good public health.
The Homeless Emergency Assistance and Rapid Transition to Housing Act of 2009 (HEARTH Act), enacted into law on May 20, 2009, consolidated the homeless assistance programs administered by HUD under the McKinney-Vento
Homeless Assistance Act into a single grant program, and revises the Emergency Shelter Grants program and renames it the Emergency Solutions Grants program. The HEARTH Act also codifies into law the Continuum of Care (CoC)
planning process, a longstanding part of HUD’s application process to assist homeless persons by providing greater community-wide coordination, decision-making, and leadership.
The Continuum of Care (CoC) Board is the group organized to carry out the responsibilities prescribed in the CoC Program Interim Rule. CoC governance responsibilities include:
- Planning for the CoC, Operating the CoC, and ensuring compliance with HUD requirements and regulations
- Coordinating the implementation of a housing and service system that meets the needs of the individuals and families who experience homelessness, including prevention and diversion strategies, outreach and engagement, coordinated assessment/entry, and exit, crisis shelter, emergency shelter, temporary housing, permanent housing, and supportive services
- Designing and implementing the process associated with applying for HUD CoC Program funds The Governance Charter outlines the roles and responsibilities of the Dos Rios Continuum of Care Board, Continuum of Care Committee(s), the Lead Agency/Collaborative Applicant and the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) Lead. This Governance Charter was developed by the Continuum of Care and HMIS lead agency in consultation with homeless housing and service providers in the CoC geography and other CoC governance body members through a committee and feedback process.
