  • Title: National Alliance to End Homelessness: Ending Homelessness Today
    Descriptive info: Ending Homelessness Today.. The official blog of the National Alliance to End Homelessness.. January 25, 2013.. In less than a month, roughly 900 folks will convene in Seattle for the Alliance s 2013 National Conference on Ending Family and Youth Homelessness.. With record registration numbers (for the first time ever, capacity constraints forced us to close registration early) we at the Alliance are thrilled to see so many motivated advocates join together to make change happen!.. For those of us who work in the homeless assistance field, networking is extremely important.. It allows us to further collaborations and share strategies and solutions.. With that in mind, I d like to take this opportunity to encourage those of you who will be attending the conference to join us at the Alliance s special reception on Thursday evening, February 21.. Read More.. January 24, 2013.. This week and next, volunteers across the country are canvassing their communities to count the number of people sleeping in shelters and on the streets.. But many communities are doing much more than that-- they are combining legally mandated point-in-time (PIT) counts with efforts to survey, identify, and gather crucial data on each individual person experiencing homelessness in their midst.. These communities are all participating in the 100,000 Homes Campaign, and they hope to do more than just count their homeless neighbors-- they want to learn their names, assess their needs, and identify specific services and resources to help them off the streets permanently.. We can t end homelessness without knowing every person on our streets by name and learning what services, subsidies and supports will help them access and maintain permanent housing.. Federal aggregate data is important to help us accurately identify the national scope of homelessness, but local organizations also need much more specific data to house their homeless neighbors quickly and efficiently.. January 23, 2013.. Many communities just finished the process of submitting their Continuum of Care (CoC) applications to HUD in which they talked about how they plan to expand on their successes and improve on their weaknesses in ending homelessness locally.. These applications contained ideas about how to target interventions more carefully, count more accurately, and improve performance across the board.. At the Alliance, we ve been thinking about how best to implement the HEARTH Act as well, on a national scale.. In the coming months, we re going to share with our readers some HEARTH Implementation best practices that we ve identified at the program and system levels.. For today s blog, we d like to talk about how to incorporate a permanent housing focus into your program s work.. January 17, 2013.. The 2013 National Conference on Ending Family and Youth Homelessness is only about a month away, and Alliance staff are working diligently to put together panelists and activities.. We can t wait to meet the 900 of you folks who have registered to join us in Seattle, WA, for two packed days of sharing new practices, education, networking, and new and improved approaches for ending family and youth homelessness!.. With the date of the conference rapidly approaching, a lot of the details are coming together and there s a lot of new and important information about registration, schedules, workshops and speakers.. Here s the latest.. January 16, 2013.. In March 2008 Fairfax County, VA, approved their Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness and soon afterwards, the County s Office to Prevent and End Homelessness (OPEH) partnered with Good Shepherd Housing and Family Services to implement a County-wide housing location services network.. The impact of housing locators hired at various shelters and transitional housing programs was immediate and substantial.. Within homeless services, housing locators are basically real estate agents for individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness.. Like real estate agents, they locate suitable and affordable housing for their clients, negotiate a good price, and facilitate the placement of their clients into housing.. They reach out to private landlords, large housing complexes, real estate agents, and public housing agencies to create housing options that work for their clients.. In 2011, working with homeless families residing in shelters in Fairfax County, our agency s housing locators helped cut the families average shelter stay by more than 50 days, a decline of more than 30 percent over the previous year.. In all, housing locators created more capacity and efficiencies within the existing homeless services programs and served as a critical bridge to housing.. January 15, 2013.. Over the course of the last several years, more than 1,000 formerly homeless families have returned to permanent housing in Salt Lake City thanks to a rapid rehousing program supported by Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) resources.. A new profile by the Alliance examines the partnership between the homeless service provider, The Road Home, and the Utah Department of Workforce Services, the state agency that administers TANF and Workforce Investment Act (WIA) programs, that helped all these families escape homelessness.. This partnership is a unique one.. It brings together both the expertise and the resources of The Road Home and Workforce Services in order to help homeless families.. More communities would benefit from adopting this approach.. Here s how it works.. VAWA Reauthorization Fails.. What Now?.. January 14, 2013.. Last year, the 112th Congress failed to pass a bill reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) due to opposition among some House Republicans against provisions that the Senate Democratic leadership insisted be included (provisions for LGBTQ, Native American, and immigrant domestic violence survivors).. In light of this failure, there have been some questions as  ...   can read more about here, kicked the can down the road two months on sequestration, which should give the newly minted 113th Congress time to do something about it, such as eliminating the measure, or reversing it and replacing it with a more balanced plan.. How the Fiscal Cliff Deal Will Impact Homelessness.. January 02, 2013.. Last night Congress passed a bipartisan bill that eliminates or postpones many aspects of the fiscal cliff.. President Obama is expected to sign the bill shortly.. As readers of this blog are no doubt aware, the fiscal cliff was made up of different federal laws that would have taken effect around now that would have either raised taxes or cut spending in a number of different areas, including programs important to ending homelessness.. The Congressional Budget Office found that, if all these measures took effect on schedule, it would have sent the economy back into a recession and substantially increased the unemployment rate.. For people working on homelessness, here are some of the important things the new bill does.. Top 3 Alliance Blog posts of 2012: Number 1.. December 28, 2012.. As the end of 2012 approaches, we d like to share with you three of our most read blog posts of the year.. This blog post, originally published on February 23, 2012, is the most read post of 2012.. It covers data from the Alliance s The State of Homelessness in America 2012.. We d like to remind readers that the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) recently released new data.. Top 3 Alliance Blog posts of 2012: Number 2.. December 27, 2012.. This post, number 2 of the Alliance s Top 3, was originally published June 14, 2012.. For the Alliance s latest Analysis of the Fiscal Cliff deal, see our recent blog post, How the Fiscal Cliff Deal Will Impact Homelessness.. Top 3 Alliance Blog posts of 2012: Number 3.. December 26, 2012.. This post, contributed by Iain De Jong, the President and CEO of OrgCode Consulting, Inc.. and a frequent and popular speaker at Alliance conferences, was originally published on January 10, 2012.. It s number 3 of the top 3 most read Alliance blog posts of 2012.. It is the first part of a two-part series.. LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Simulation.. Each year the Victory Institute gathers LGBT elected and appointed officials from across the nation for its LGBT International Leadership Conference, where they discuss issues facing the LGBT community.. This year I was invited to talk to these decision makers about LGBT homelessness.. It was a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of the plight of unaccompanied young people and, with such an esteemed group of individuals on hand, the occasion called for something more impactful than a typical PowerPoint presentation.. It was time to roll out the LGBTQ Youth Homelessness Simulation that Ed SanFilippo (the Alliance s Policy Fellow) and I had been developing.. National Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day.. December 21, 2012.. The date December 21 has meanings both ancient and new.. Communities in every era have paused in awareness of waning daylight and the promise of the sun s return; in our era, some will pause to look for assurance that the world keeps turning.. It is appropriate that National Homeless Persons Memorial Day is December 21.. For people living on the street, the darkest day of the calendar is especially dark; for a person to die on the street is an ending that should be unthinkable.. Homeless advocates, today, will pause to honor the neighbors and fellow citizens who passed away in 2012 without a home.. 2012 … And that’s a wrap!.. December 20, 2012.. Well, OK, not quite.. We ve still got about 11 days left in 2012 and a pesky so-called fiscal cliff to deal with.. But for now, let s set all the last-minute fervor aside and take a look back at what a great year our advocates have had!.. Starting with the release of the State of Homelessness in America 2012 in January, advocates teamed up with the Alliance to get widespread media coverage.. With your help, we were able to educate and informed our neighbors and local opinion leaders about our report and the important data contained within.. It was a great way to start the year!.. Last..
