Coordinated Entry and Assessment — Analysis and Refinement Work

In 2012, King County launched Family Housing Connection (FHC), a coordinated entry assessment and referral process for families experiencing homelessness in King County. Over the past two and a half years, learnings from local experience and changes in expectations at the Federal and State level have influenced a number of policy and practice shifts. Consulting firm Focus Strategies has been engaged by All Home to assess the progress to date and recommend refinements to the system as needed.

The final report from the consultant can be found here.

Developing a Housing Stability Plan

Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program (YHDP)

In January 2017, Seattle-King County’s Continuum of Care (CoC) was one of ten communities selected (out of 130 applicants) for HUD’s Youth Homelessness Demonstration Program and was awarded $5.4 million to accelerate our community’s progress in preventing and ending youth and young adult homelessness. As an awardee of the YHDP, the CoC is required to submit a Coordinated Community Plan, led by All Home, to lay the groundwork for implementation and to provide a framework for the various projects that will be funded through YHDP.

On October 18th, 2017, All Home submitted the following YHDP Coordinated Community Plan. Upon approval of the Plan from HUD, we will begin implementation including a process for selecting partners to operate the new projects and submitting project applications to HUD to get contracts in place and programs up and running. Opportunities for continued engagement will be shared in the All Home Weekly Newsletter.

Thank you to the 100+ community partners, young people, and providers that have contributed to this effort!

Comprehensive Plan Refresh

The YYA Comprehensive Plan Refresh, endorsed by the YYA Advisory Group and Youth Advocates Ending Homelessness in May 2015, outlines our community’s strategies in the areas of (1) making homelessness rare and brief, (2) making homelessness one-time, (3) supporting YYA of color, (4) supporting LGBTQ YYA and (5) improving access to housing and matching housing with YYA needs. The Comprehensive Plan Refresh outlines priority activities, system activities, and measures of success for the next 2 years. The Comprehensive Plan Refresh reflects the work of many community members in thoughtful discussion in late 2014 and early 2015 – thank you to all of you who have been involved and provided leadership, input and thinking to this process.

The Comprehensive Plan Refresh is an update to the 2013 Comprehensive Plan to Prevent and End Youth and Young Adult Homelessness in King County by 2020, which identified our community’s vision to end homelessness among YYA in King County by 2020 and our 18 month implementation strategy to begin delivering on this vision.
