Information, Data, and Events

Northwest CoC partner Vaya Health has released a statement geared towards the community at large on the drastic cuts to mental health service providers. For more information, please contact Vaya's Marketing and Communications Coordinator.   

Northwest CoC agencies gather data on the extent of homelessness in the seven counties served. We plan to compile an Annual Report to share with partner agencies on what homelessness looks like in each county, what trends we observe, and what support is needed to prevent and end homelessness. This report is a new endeavor on our part, but we hope this will serve as a tool for service providers and local leadership. 


Our services do not exist in a vacuum. There are important indicators in the region that influence both the demand for and success of services. Click the items below to view data on our region:
