HUD Homeless Definition
  • Homeless Person
  • HUD Continuum of Care resources can be used to
    serve only people who are considered homeless
    according to the McKinney Act. Based on HUD
    regulations, a homeless person is someone who is
  • Living in places not meant for human
    habitation (streets, cars, parks)
  • Living in an emergency shelter
  • Living in transitional or supportive housing
    but originally came from the streets or shelter

10
HUD Homeless Definition (cont)
  • Living in any of the above but spending up to 30
    consecutive days in an institution
  • Being evicted within a week and has no subsequent
    residence
  • Being discharged within a week from an
    institution which the person has been a resident
    for no more than 30 consecutive days and no
    subsequent residence has been identified and the
    person lacks the resources and support networks
    needed to obtain housing or
  • Fleeing a domestic violence situation and no
    subsequent
  • residence has been identified.

11
DEFINITION
  • A Continuum of Care Plan is a community based
    plan which coordinates a flexible delivery system
    of housing and services designed to meet the
    specific needs of homeless persons as they move
    from a homeless living situation to stable
    housing which maximizes their self-sufficiency.
    It includes action steps to alleviate
    homelessness and prevent a return to homelessness
    for persons completing the continuum.

12
WHAT DOES A CONTINUUM OF CARE PLAN DO FOR YOUR
COMMUNITY
  • Assess capacity and identify gaps
  • Develop proactive solutions
  • Identify common goals for which to advocate
  • Increase community buy-in and access to
    mainstream resources
  • Increase competitive advantage for receiving HUD
    McKinney Homeless Assistance funding

13
So, a CoC is
  • Community based plan
  • Flexible delivery system
  • Housing and services program
  • THAT
  • Moves homeless persons to stable housing
  • AND
  • Maximizes self-sufficiency

14
Annually to HUD….
  • Exhibit 1 Continuum of Care Plan - a
    description of the process, strategies and goals
    to end homelessness, and a list of the projects
    requesting funding, in order of priority.
  • Exhibit 2 Individual Community and Faith based
    organization proposals

15
The Three Programs of the Continuum of Care
  • Shelter Plus Care (SPC) provides rental
    assistance for hard-to-serve homeless persons
    with disabilities in connection with supportive
    services funded from sources outside the program.

16
The Three Programs of the Continuum of Care
(Cont.)
  • Section 8 Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room
    Occupancy Program (SRO) provides Section 8 rental
  • assistance for moderate rehabilitation of
    buildings with SRO units. A Public Housing
    Agency then makes rental assistance payments to
    the landlords for the homeless people who rent
    the rehabilitated units.

17
The Three Programs of the Continuum of Care
(Cont.)
  • Supportive Housing Program (SHP) housing and
    services that help homeless persons transition
    from homelessness to living as independently as
    possible.

  • A Countcollecting information about the
    sheltered and unsheltered homeless population in
    your community
  • Descriptive information
  • On those counted
  • Demographic
  • Service use
  • Needs

Data on the number of homeless people
Point-in-time Count of Homeless people


45
Why Count the Homeless?
  • Obtain current and accurate data on the number
    and characteristics of homeless for program
    planning and to justify requests for additional
    resources
  • Policy and planning decisions-plan for future
    services
  • Public awareness
  • Funder requirements-Continuum of Care application
    and other non-HUD funding

46
When to Count Homeless Persons?
  • HUD requires the count to take place during one
    of the last seven calendar days in January and
    July
  • The time period for data collection
  • -- 24 hours or less-typically involves a blitz
  • -- More than 24 hours-generally service based
  • The BoS CoC will be conducting a winter and
    summer sheltered and unsheltered count starting
    2008

47
Methods for Counting Unsheltered Homeless Persons
  • Street count plus interviews
  • Simple street count with observation
  • No interview-volunteers record observations of
    people
  • Service-based count
  • interviews at non-shelter service locations that
    unsheltered homeless people rely on to
    survive-soup kitchens or food banks, drop-in
    centers, healthcare centers, emergency rooms

48
Methods for Counting Sheltered Homeless persons
  • Homeless Missourians Information System (HMIS)
  • Extract client-level count and subpopulation data
  • Requires high provider coverage and excellent
    data quality
  • Provider report or survey
  • Count of people in program
  • Subpopulation information or estimate for entire
    population

49
Where to Count the Unsheltered Homeless?
  • Foreclosed homes
  • Campgrounds
  • Riverbanks
  • Under bridges
  • Wooded areas
  • Abandoned barns
  • Truck stops
  • 24 hour stores
  • Parks

50
How do we make this happen?
  • Solicit volunteers to assist with the count
  • Colleges/ Universities
  • Homeless liaison with school districts
  • Public assistance offices
  • Youth outreach workers
  • Local law enforcement
  • Churches
  • Formerly homeless persons
  • Friends and family

51
Where to Count the Sheltered Homeless?
  • People residing in emergency shelter and
    transitional housing
  • Include
  • Domestic violence shelters
  • Residential programs for runaway/ homeless youth
  • Hotel, motel, or apartment vouchers paid for by a
    public or private agency because the individual
    or family is homeless

52
Once data is collected it is used to…
  • Create the BoS CoC homeless count summary report
  • Complete the Exhibit 1 portion of the BoS CoC
    application to HUD
  • Report to the Commissioners of MHDC
