Racial Equity

Since February 2020, the Three County Continuum of Care has engaged in a series of activities specifically focused on centering racial equity in our homelessness response. In collaboration with Racial Equity Partners, we have:  

  1. Analyzed our data through a racial equity lens (to see racial disparities data by County, visit our local data section.) 

  2. Provided antiracism training for providers working in the homelessness system 

  3. Engaged community partners to develop strategies to address racial inequities in our homelessness response 

  4. Developed a Racial Equity Action Plan to guide our work 

 

You can find the public facing 2021 Three County CoC Racial Equity Action Plan here.  

The Three County CoC, along with the Western Mass Network to End Homelessness, is dedicated to undoing structural racism and support Legislative priorities that address policies needed to increase equitable measures for people of color in the intersection of race and homelessness as well as upstream budget and bills that support funding to increase support for our most vulnerable populations.  Here are the 2021 budget priorities & bill priorities, supported by the CoC.
