Continuum of Care Plan
In July 1993, Miami-Dade County’s governing body, the Board of County Commissioners (the BCC), adopted a continuum of care plan entitled the "Miami-Dade County Community Homeless Plan" (the Plan).
Countywide Outreach Process
Access to the Continuum of Care (CoC) System is key to its success. A coordinated outreach process was envisioned, and consequently developed, that would provide an easy and standard procedure for homeless persons to access the system, and to ensure that the services they accessed were appropriate to their individual needs.
Food & Beverage Tax
Public funding was needed and a 1% sales tax on food and beverages sold in the larger restaurants was instituted.
Provider Standards of Care
The Trust has developed and implemented Standards of Care that are designed to set minimum standards of housing and service delivery for homeless persons.Back to Top Page Last Edited: Mon Aug 20, 2012 10:38:04 AM
