El Dorado Strategic Plan

On May 6, 2022 the El Dorado Continuum of Care adopted the Collectively Building: A Community Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness in El Dorado County.


The final plan can be found here. Implementation of the key strategic priorities of the plan are underway with the help of the CoC and community partners.

The top priority of El Dorado CoC and El Dorado County is to implement emergency housing solutions for homeless individuals as quickly as possible. El Dorado staff is leading the efforts to move this key strategy forward. For a detailed First Year Implementation Plan, see Appendix E of the Collectively Building Plan. 


The following committees have been formed to implement the top priorities of the strategic plan:

1. Homelessness Prevention and Diversion

2. Institutional Transitions (criminal legal system, medical, foster care system)

3. Shared Housing 

4. Safe Parking

5. Landlord Outreach and Engagement
