El Dorado Regional Strategic Planning


Make sure your voice is heard as the region identifies priorities and goals for the coming years!

The El Dorado Opportunity Knocks (EDOK) Continuum of Care (CoC) will be holding Strategic Planning Meetings to solicit feedback from the community for its regional strategic planning process to address homelessness in El Dorado County. To ensure this plan is responsive to the true needs of our community, we need to hear directly from as many of you, your peers, and your clients as possible. The next meeting is planned for April 2020. 

Please check back here soon for meeting date and access.
