El Dorado Opportunity Knocks Continuum of Care (EDOK CoC) is a regional planning body of representative stakeholders in El Dorado County that coordinates the community’s policies, strategies, and activities toward preventing and ending homelessness.


Its work includes gathering and analyzing information to determine the needs of people experiencing homelessness, implementing strategic responses, educating the community on homeless issues, providing advice and input on the operations of homeless services, and measuring CoC performance.
