Regional collaboration and coordination

Founded in 1988, the Regional Steering Committee (RSC) is the longest running peer learning community on homelessness in the United States. RSC members discuss a wide range of issues and concerns, with a focus on regional problem solving, system strengthening, and priority setting. Membership includes homeless system leadership, program managers and executive staff, Continuums of Care Collaborative Applicants, advocacy organizations, people with lived experience of homelessness, and representatives from county systems.

The NorCal Roundtable is a learning community of homeless system and program leadership from communities across Northern California and the Central Valley. The NorCal Roundtable meets quarterly to discuss pressing policy and implementation issues, with an emphasis on the challenges facing California’s rural and semi-rural communities. The NorCal Roundtable provides regular opportunities for participants to exchange information, engage in policy work at the state and federal level, and build community across a broad geographic area. Participants work collaboratively to identify common needs and problem areas and to discuss creative solutions.

The CenCal Roundtable is the newest addition to the peer communities, launched in Merced in 2014. The CenCal Roundtable was designed to provide a forum for homeless response leaders in those Central Valley communities that are unable to make it to the NorCal Roundtable. As with the NorCal Roundtable, this is a forum for participants to come together to share strategies, advocate for change at the state and federal level, and network across the region.
