The Coalition is developing a county wide network of service collaborations to decrease instances of homelessness and reduce the financial strain to the communities.
The goal is to ensure that those in need receive appropriate, non-duplicated services, identify gaps in services, and advocate & educate on behalf of people with housing needs.
Our MIssion: "In respecting the innate dignity of all; the Curry Homeless Coalition provides education, advocacy, and coordinates supportive services for people with housing needs."
SOCRC offers an additional point of access to housing providers and their services. We offer applications for ORCCA housing programs and well as Coos Curry Housing Authority Section 8 and Housing Choice Voucher applications. Our staff are available to assist clients with the completion and submission of applications.
The Curry Homeless Coalition contributed both financially and with subject matter expertise, in the development of the Curry Housing Study Action Plan. Our board members are actively involved in the Curry Housing Task Force and Core Team, working toward systems change, policy revision and organizational efforts to encourage development of low income, permanent supportive and low barrier, transitional housing options in Curry County.
SOCRC hosts SCBEC (South Coast Business Employment Corporation), and Worksource Oregon every Thursday from 9-4.. Career Navigators provide support for clients seeking employment services, and with educational goals. Call 541-469-9836 for assistance in Curry County and to make an appointment with the career navigator.
Peer Support Specialists come prepared to offer support for clients in need of systems navigation. Clients can easily become overwhelmed when living day-to-day in crisis mode. Peer Support specialists typically come with "lived experience". In other words, they have experienced homelessness, substance use disorder, mental illness, and or poverty. PSS' experiences allow for greater empathy and compassion for clients who require support accessing resources, completing applications, attending meetings, staying on schedule with therapy and or primary care appointments.
