The Department of Housing and Community Development hosted a meeting to discuss the new shelter scope of services, introduce their software partner and go over the new data system. Click here to see/download the slides from the meeting. And here to read HFF’s meeting notes. Admittedly, I slacked off during the presentation from Social Solutions and I thought the slides had most of the information so I didn’t take the most copious of notes. However, providers asked some important questions and I hope I captured most of that dialogue.
I also noted areas that DHCD asked for specific feedback, which included the following topics:
- Clarifying roles with distinct agencies and partners for stabilization and other service provision
- Assuring RAFT as a successful prevention tool for families with extremely low incomes
- Developing a model for shared scattered sites
- Policies around non-compliances for HomeBASE eligibility
Please feel free to submit your questions, reactions, and feedback to HFF (via the blog or email) so we can keep the conversations going.
