In 2017, the Stanislaus County Housing and Support Services Collaborative/Continuum of Care and the Homelessness Action Council merged efforts. The Stanislaus Community System of Care (SCSOC) now leads homelessness efforts, led by a 25 member Council representing all major sectors of our community.
