Cumberland County has a coordinated network of agencies and services that responds to the needs of individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Funding from state and federal sources provide various types of shelter, transitional housing, emergency assistance with rent, emergency assistance with utilities, emergency groceries and daily meals. The Cumberland County Division of Homeless, a division within the County Office on Aging and Disabled, coordinates some, not all, of the homeless services in the county. The office maintains a resource directory for Homeless and At-Risk Services in Cumberland County.

The Coordinator of the Division of Homeless convenes monthly meetings of the Comprehensive Emergency Assistance System (CEAS) Committee to plan for and monitor homeless and at- risk services. The CEAS Committee serves as the Local Board for the federally funded Emergency Food and Shelter Program. Additionally, the CEAS Committee serves as the planning body and work group for yearly application submissions requesting funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, Continuum of Care, Homeless Assistance Programs.

The CEAS Committee, is comprised of service providers that provide homeless services and services to prevent homelessness, housing providers, homeless and housing advocates, a previously homeless consumer and agencies that represent sub populations that are prevalent within the boundaries of our geographic area. CEAS Committee meetings are open to the public, and are held on the second Wednesday of each month from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Cumberland County Administration Building, 790 East Commerce Street in Bridgeton in the Freeholders' Conference Room.
