- Research, Evaluation, and Best Practices
Date Published: September 2015
This toolkit provides resources and concepts for transforming homeless services to crisis response systems that prevent homelessness and rapidly return people who experience homelessness to stable housing. The US Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH) provides a framework to retool the homeless crisis system in Objective 10 of the Opening Doors: Federal Strategic Plan to Prevent and End Homelessness. Given the immediacy of the Federal goal of ending veteran homelessness by the end of 2015, this toolkit is geared towards veteran specific resources.
This toolkit includes the following sections:
Keywords: veterans; crisis response; housing crisis; rapid response; rapid rehousing; crisis intervention; low barrier emergency shelter; emergency services; housing first; housing plans; progressive assistance; diversion and homelessness prevention; HUD-VASH; SSVF; GPD; Housing Placements; VA housing resources; Vets at Home
