CoC May 6 Presentation - Homeless Services Network of Central

Report
Our community continuum of
care has been developing a
Coordinated Assessment
System for homeless persons
in our community for the
past year.
Recently, the Veteran’s
Administration chose 25
Cities to assist in this effort,
our Orlando area being one
of them.

PARTNERS IN ORLANDO 25 CITIES
This effort involves the use of a
Coordinated Assessment and Housing
Placement system (abbreviated CAHP)
in conjunction with our developing
Continuum of Care Coordinated
Assessment System through Homeless
Services Network using HMIS .
The 25 Cities initiative uses CAHP to create
the parts of the system that are easier to
implement. We will be participating in a
special 100-day “Rapid Results” effort
aimed at helping us quickly start this
system.
The effort focuses, initially, on moving the chronically
homeless and homeless veterans living in downtown
Orlando and East Orange County, from street to
home. Once the new system is up and running, it
will then be brought to other geographic areas in our
continuum of care and then extended to the
remaining homeless populations in our continuum of
care.
Implementation Approach: Rapid Results
• 100-day project cycles
– Each project a complete cycle: design, build, and use
– Learning-though-implementing: adjust/refine processes and
policies, and build/reinforce new habits and behaviors
• “Shrink the Change”
– Start with one population and/or geography, build from there
• “Designers are Implementers”
– Front line staff design and implement each 100 day project
– Leaders scale-up innovations, based on recommendations
provided by front-line teams
Challenge: Build a pilot CAHP system for Veterans and
Chronically Homeless living in Orange County & Orlando, in 100
days

WHAT IS A COORDINATED ASSESSMENT
AND HOUSING PLACEMENT (CAHP)
SYSTEM?
Lots of passion & hard work, but…
Without a CAHP
• It’s a “Maze” that many clients and case
workers can not navigate
• System resources are not optimally utilized
• Hardest to serve get left behind

With a CAHP System
• Link each person to the right
housing for their needs
• Lower admin costs, increase
efficiency and speed
• Ease collaboration among
providers
