Membership

Barnstable County Department of Human Services convenes the Regional Network, a broad-based public-private partnership committed to identifying and implementing creative solutions to preventing and ending homelessness on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket. The Regional Network is also the entity organized to carry out the responsibilities required by the HUD CoC Program and is composed of representatives of organizations, including nonprofit homeless providers, victim service providers, faith-based organizations, governments, businesses, advocates, public housing agencies, school districts, social service providers, mental health agencies, hospitals, universities, affordable housing developers, law enforcement, organizations that serve homeless and formerly homeless veterans, and homeless and formerly homeless persons to the extent these groups are represented within the geographic area and are available to participate.

The Regional Network is comprised of an Executive Committee, a Policy Board, several working groups, and a larger network of interested stakeholders.

Governance

In January 2017, the Regional Network revised the 2014 charter and adopted a new Governance Charter. The Charter outlines membership, responsibilities delegated by the Regional Network to its Policy Board, committees and agents, provisions for governance through the Policy Board and key policies and processes, and designates the Regional Network as the Cape & Island’s Continuum of Care.
