How do you get the right household to the right intervention in the right order without just having fancy waiting lists? Are you coordinating for shelter entry, housing programs, or both? Do you find yourself completely frustrated by the notion of By Name Lists?
This workshop focuses on sorting out the messy details of fluid data in a complicated service delivery system in a way that is driven by science, not guess work. Attendees learn how to remove subjectivity and side doors from their service delivery system, and leverage their HMIS to make the process more efficient and effective. Participants can expect to also gain deep knowledge of effective diversion programs, and approaches for empowering natural resiliencies in people seeking services. Attendees will learn the types of decisions they need to make as a community, how to work through establishing community priorities, and how to operationally households into the solution to their homelessness. Even communities that are chugging along with a coordinated entry system in its infancy will find this two day workshop valuable. Plus you can lay to rest any foggy understanding you may have with concepts like “functional zero”. There are also specific streams for families, youth, and single adults.
