WORKSHOPS V: 5.01 Go with the Flow

2:30 PM–3:45 PM Jul 23, 2019 (US - Eastern)

Roosevelt 1&2


Good system flow results from managing the way the parts of the homeless system work together to move people through shelter and into housing quickly. If done properly it achieves the goal of making homeless rare, brief, and one-time. This workshop will illustrate how each intervention and part of the system can be an accelerator or a barrier to system flow. The discussion will help you diagnose imbalances in your homeless response system, identify gaps, remove bottlenecks, and right-size interventions, in order to better divert people from shelters, shorten the time people spend homeless, and send more people to housing.
