This training is designed for direct service providers, managers, and leadership at organizations moving individuals off the streets and into permanent supportive housing. It is also appropriate for others, like volunteers and community members, that organizations are relying on in their community to administer the assessment.
Expert, Iain De Jong of Org Code, Inc, will cover the VI-SPDAT assessment tool, as described below:
The Vulnerability Index-Service Prioritization and Decision Assistance Tool (VI-SPDAT) is a first-of-its-kind tool designed to fill this need, helping communities end homelessness in a quick, strategic fashion. The VI-SPDAT is designed to help you calibrate your response based on the individual, not merely the general population category into which they may fall (e.g., vulnerable, chronically homeless, etc.). This development carries forward the best learning of the Campaign that our systems must know homeless individuals personally to identify the best ways to help them escape homelessness.

PLEASE NOTE: This training will take place in the auditorium of the building where United Way is located. Therefore, it will have ample seating for as many individuals as your organization would like to send!
