Gaston County

Each county within the Gaston-Lincoln-Cleveland Continuum of Care has a county-based Work Group. The purpose of the county Work Group is to coordinate activities that are specific to the geographical boundaries of that county, to influence and assist with CoC-wide strategies and priorities, and to educate/advocate at the hyper-local level around issues that impact the entire G-L-C CoC region. Work Groups also recruit new members to the G-L-C CoC and provide for representation on the G-L-C’s Advisory Board and CoC-wide committees. Work Groups are not autonomous CoC’s but, rather, provide critical infrastructure and influence that makes a regional CoC covering Cleveland, Gaston, and Lincoln counties successful.

The Gaston CoC Work Group

The Gaston County CoC Work Group currently meets on the second Wednesday of each month from 10:00am-12:00noon in-person at the Belmont Housing Authority. The Work Group’s 2023 chairperson is Danielle Webb, Community Organizer for Displaced Roses (d.webb.gaston@gmail.com). Areas of focus for the Gaston County CoC Work Group in 2023 include transportation needs and access to health and mental health services.
