100-Day Pilot Helps Most Vulnerable Find Housing More Quickly

CES Team

In March of this year, Home For Good launched a Pilot Coordinated Entry System in Skid Row which is focusing on creating a comprehensive system to quickly and effectively match homeless individuals to housing and services.  This week organizations participating in the pilot celebrated the completion of the first 100 days of the pilot by sharing their impressive accomplishments with over 100 community stakeholders.

The new CES, which was designed by on-the-ground service staff and is supported by government and philanthropic leaders, has housed more than 37 of the area’s most vulnerable people in just over three months. The system provides permanent supportive housing more quickly and democratically than ever before, and it has also empowered local agencies to radically improve the way they work together.

Over the last 100 days, teams participating in the Pilot CES have put together a four step process to move people into housing:

1.)    Universal Assessment: Administer an assessment to determine a person’s needs.

2.)    Navigation: Assist homeless individuals with housing navigation by assuring they have interim housing and documentation needed to access permanent housing placement.

3.)    Matching: Have housing providers pull clients from a unified housing list while assuring prioritization of the most vulnerable individuals.

4.)    Lease-Up: Once a client is matched to housing, assure a fast and smooth move-in process.

The system the teams have created is detailed in their Coordinated Entry Manual which also lists policy recommendations for scaling up CES countywide.

So what’s next for CES in Skid Row? The teams will be coming together to determine how they will work on refining their process in the second 100 days. In addition, policy leaders will be participating in their own 100 day pilot in which they will undertake important systems change to assure a countywide implementation of CES.

We are excited about the incredible work that will be taking place in the next couple of months, and would like to extend our deepest gratitude to the dozens of partners who have made incredible change possible during the first phase of this pilot!

    So you, as the restorer, have to set realistic goals as to exactly what parts
    of the car you are going to restore to their original states
    and what parts of the car you are willing to restore “as close as possible” to their original states.

    The proceeds of selling your older car can go to the operations of the charity like giving food or clothing to
    the family that they supported. All since then,
    Indica is floating in the market with a regular sale.
    It is available in two versions of petrol and diesel and has been a very reasonable price.

    The turbo 4-banger in the Volkswagon GTI Mk5 is fairly unique among such engines in that it produces huge amounts of torque at a
