It is more critical than ever for programs to measure and articulate their effectiveness. Both for funding purposes and for effective planning, communities must be able to assess whether their systems of care are successfully meeting the needs of people who are homeless and be able to track that success over time. This workshop provided introductory-level guidance on creating a performance measurement system.

This half-day institute offered an inside look at how to create a rural plan, strategies that work in rural areas, and how to cultivate partnerships in rural areas. The workshop highlighted the achievements in the first year of the National Alliance to End Homelessness’ Rural Homeless Initiative of Southeast and Central Ohio (RHISCO). This innovative venture brought together 17 rural and Appalachian counties of Ohio to collaborate on regional strategies and develop Ten Year Plans to End Homelessness. With a focus on rural themes and regional cooperation, institute speakers highlighted lessons learned during 2006 and provide insight into promoting and improving planning to end homelessness in rural communities.

Research reveals troubling over-representation of African Americans and American Indians among homeless youth. Providers are interested in finding ways to appropriately serve youth of color, from a cultural and youth development perspective, and are increasingly aware of the overrepresentation of American Indian and African American youth in programs. This meeting included a broad discussion on race and youth homelessness to review current data and research and explore the link between child welfare systems and juvenile justice systems and youth homelessness.

Getting accurate counts of homeless people is a difficult but important process. The value of the counts goes beyond fulfilling a HUD requirement. Communities can use homeless counts to increase public awareness, attract resources that lead to the eradication of the problem, and help program administrators and policymakers to understand the needs of people who experience homelessness. This workshop highlighted effective count strategies for different types of communities.
