Title: Ending Family and Youth Homelessness


1
Ending Family and Youth Homelessness
2
Basics Improving Performance of Homeless
Service System
  • Most families remain homeless a short time
    often until they save enough to exit on their own
    with help, they could exit faster.
  • Long-term stays in homeless programs are very
    expensive, long stays in transitional housing
    programs should be reserved for situations when
    it is more effective/beneficial than helping
    families pay for housing.
  • Families who have multiple homeless episodes
    require more intensive help than they typically
    receive from homeless service programs.

Allocating Resources Differently
Service Pattern Percent Current Response New Response
Temporary 72-80 Short shelter/TH stays Rapid Re-housing when necessary
Long-Stays 15-20 Long transitional housing stays Rapid Re-housing
Episodic 5 8 Multiple shelter stays Intensive housing service models including PSH

4
Rapid Re-housing Primary Response for Major
  • Rapid Re-housing is an intervention designed to
    help individuals and families move quickly back
    into housing in the community through the
    provision of
  • Housing Identification assistance
  • Rent and Move-In assistance and
  • Rapid Re-housing Case Management and Services

5
Investing in Ending Homelessness - Design
Considerations
  • Prevention vs. Rapid Re-housing
  • Augmenting the intervention, eg
  • Employment/Rapid Re-housing (TANF partnerships)
  • Home Visitation Services (Younger Families)
  • Sizing the intervention progressive engagement,
    predictive models, one size fits all.
  • Targeting service-rich interventions narrowly -
    reallocating appropriately

6
Select Outcomes..
  • Reductions..
  • New investments.
  • Improved Performance
  • Lower recidivism, Lower LOS, Fewer Turnaways
  • Costs Savings/Increased efficiency

Developing/Enhancing Interventions
  • Improving data (PIT RHYMIS/HMIS Integration)
