The Continuum of Care’s guiding principles include a commitment to exercising racial equity, diversity and inclusion – with shared power and vision in all decisions and practices by this body and all funding entities – to create an equitable service delivery system to prevent and eliminate homelessness in Pierce County.
The Continuum of Care values these practices in the homeless system because people of color are much more likely to experience homelessness in Pierce County than those who are White. Race influences homelessness. This is a result of centuries of structural racism that have historically excluded oppressed people, particularly Black and Native Americans, from equal access to housing, community supports and opportunities for economic mobility.
