peer mentors and youth who have been trained to offer the assessment

 

first communities to look at families

 

addendum

 

family homeless is a different data set than anyone else

 

questions that were not on here that are not here and how we prioritize these services

TRAUMA CARE  perspectives   environmental scan of the families

 

work group   roll out #  who is at the table  see how we can do  to house people in a realistic way

 

ANGEL  was just before  now Rebecca M.  common data mechanism where we need more resources.  no families that this is the way to get a place to live. House  agencies  limited # of sites  identify organizations that do not have a developed service delivery already.   4 to 6 agencies regionally for pilot
