Resource Roundup: Identification and Engagement

May 8, 2019

It is important to quickly identify and engage individuals and families that fall into homelessness to ensure that experience is brief. Communities can use coordinated, housing-focused outreach to people who are unsheltered, in-reach to people in institutional settings, and data from multiple systems, to identify and engage individuals and families experiencing homelessness. These resources can help:

Identify every individual and family experiencing homelessness

Collect information from hospitals, jails, schools, the child welfare system, hotlines and 2-1-1, and other community-based programs

Build and maintain active lists of people experiencing homelessness and track progress toward housing placement
