System Design Clinic
|The System Design Clinic is designed to help your community move from a collection of individual programs that address homelessness to a crisis response system that makes strategic, data driven decisions.|
The National Alliance to End Homelessness’ System Design Clinic is designed to help your community move from a collection of individual programs that address homelessness to a crisis response system that makes strategic, data driven decisions. Communities work with instructors to develop concrete governance strategies and action plans for becoming a high-functioning crisis response system.
The clinic takes place over 1.5 days and brings together community leaders and stakeholders. The first full day is designed to include all Continuum of Care stakeholders, and the second half day is designed to work specifically with the members of the Continuum of Care governance board.
Attendees receive hands-on assistance analyzing and interpreting their data through the Homeless System Evaluator and the Qualitative Assessment Tools. Clinics include interactive activities, facilitated strategic planning, and presentations on effective governance and systems planning.
Communities also receive three months of follow-up support to aid in implementing improvement plans.
