ZERO2016 Community Commitments
  • We commit to using a common definition and
    measurements for what it means to get to zero
  • FUNCTIONAL ZERO FOR VETERANS At any point in
    time, the number of Veterans experiencing
    sheltered and unsheltered homelessness will be no
    greater than the current monthly housing
    placement rate for Veterans experiencing
    homelessness
  • FUNCTIONAL ZERO FOR CHRONICALLY HOMELESS At any
    point in time, the number of people experiencing
    sheltered and unsheltered chronic homelessness,
    excluding Veterans experiencing chronic
    homelessness, will be no greater than the current
    monthly housing placement rate for people
    experiencing chronic homelessness

7
ZERO2016 Community Commitments
  • We are able and willing to report aggregate
    housing placements of all chronically homeless
    individuals and homeless Veterans housed across
    the CoC on a consistent monthly basis
  • Currently tracking homeless Veterans through HMIS
    for action and housing solutions at Joint

  • We agree to have our aggregate monthly housing
    placement data shared publicly on the Zero 2016

    Community Solutions, a Take Down Target for
    Veterans and chronically homeless individuals

ZERO2016 Community Commitments
  • We have adopted an evidence-informed Common
    Assessment Tool that triages households into
    recommended housing intervention categories and
    prioritizes persons based on need/acuity
  • Implemented the Documentation of Priority Status
    Process
  • Updating the Housing Assessment Form

10
ZERO2016 Community Commitments
  • We will integrate our Common Assessment Tool into
    our January 2015 Point-in-Time Count to achieve
    dual goals of compliance with important federal
    measurement requirements and the collection of
    actionable, real time, by-name data to help us
    house those we count
  • We will contribute actively to the Zero 2016
    national peer support network, to ensure we can
    rapidly spread ideas and solutions to other
    communities
