System Transformation

All Home and our partners are engaged in a multi-year system transformation process, shifting our services and housing to be person-centered, housing-focused, low barrier, and data-driven, all aimed at reducing racial disparities and making homelessness rare, brief and one-time.

Shifting to a new approach requires collaboration and participation from all partners in ending homelessness, including funders and housing and homeless service providers as well as philanthropic and cross-system partners. Shifting how we work at the governance and street levels, continuously learning from data, provider experience, and direct client feedback, requires significant effort and outside support. All Home is committed to supporting our entire continuum through these changes and will be using a Capacity Building Plan as the platform to carry out the training, technical assistance, and community dialogues that are necessary to make these shifts.

The Capacity Building Plan is available here. Learning opportunities will be announced via the All Home Weekly Newsletter and on the All Home calendar (no longer on the above plan, which describes the types of training and support opportunities which will be made available).

Upcoming training, workshops and learning opportunities for early 2017 (more details to come) will include:

  • Critical Time Intervention
  • A Housing First System (part 2)
  • Property Management and Service Delivery Round Table
  • Racial Equity and Social Justice Forum
  • Rapid Re-Housing
  • Trauma-Informed Care
