Partners for HOME (PFH) is seeking proposals to build capacity within the Atlanta Homeless Continuum of Care’s (CoC) Crisis Response System and the Coordinated Entry System (CES) for a dedicated crisis response team serving unsheltered individuals throughout Atlanta to support the goal of ending Chronic Homelessness by 2019. The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness sets the benchmarks and criteria which a community must meet to formally certify having met the goal of ending chronic homelessness. Demonstrating that a community’s Coordinated Entry System (CES) is equipped with sufficient outreach to ensure that the entire geography is covered and that all individuals who are chronically homeless and unsheltered are identified and offered permanent housing on a regular basis must be accomplished to declare an end to chronic homelessness.
The Coordinated Entry System (CES) is a model adopted to streamline the process for individuals experiencing homelessness to access housing options. The CES prioritizes those individuals and households with the most intensive service needs and housing barriers (e.g. chronically homeless households and households with multiple episodes of homelessness). Crisis response work will target those who are unsheltered and the chronically homeless with a focus on individuals engaging in quality of life crimes and diverting them to ongoing navigation, and permanent housing.
Proposals are due Friday, November 22nd, 5:00 PM.
