Assessing the NeedChallenges

- Rapidly identifying and addressing the issues that may have contributed to an individual or family’s homelessness.

- Gathering information necessary to determine their most critical needs.

- Identifying primary goals and developing a case plan to help move the individual or family to self-sufficiency within a limited time frame.

 

Solutions

- The first point-of-entry to the Center is the Coordinated Assessment Unit, where individuals and families are screened and assessed for medical, behavioral health, substance abuse, housing and employment needs.

- A comprehensive bio-psychosocial assessment is completed by Master’s-level clinicians.

- Individuals and families admitted to the Center are assigned a case manager within 48 hours of arrival.

2014 Accomplishments

- 923 adults experiencing homelessness were assessed at the Central Housing Assistance Center.

- 923 adult program participants and 120 children received case management services.
