CoC Workgroups

Workgroups are established by the CoC Membership Council to target specific issues pertaining to homelessness in San Antonio and Bexar County through community collaboration. Our workgroups are a place to make connections within and across sectors, work on special projects, and share resources with the goal of ending homelessness. Workgroups are open to the public and there are no membership requirements.
