Resource Roundup: Identification and Engagement

It is important to quickly identify and engage individuals and families that fall into homelessness to ensure that experience is brief. Communities can use coordinated, housing-focused outreach to people who are unsheltered, in-reach to people in institutional settings, and data from multiple systems, to identify and engage individuals and families experiencing homelessness. These resources can help:

Identify every individual and family experiencing homelessness

Collect information from hospitals, jails, schools, the child welfare system, hotlines and 2-1-1, and other community-based programs

Build and maintain active lists of people experiencing homelessness and track progress toward housing placement
