County Homeless Roadmap on Maximizing Efficiencies (CHROME) Released to Guide HHSA Homeless Efforts

While many different HHSA programs and staff do tremendous work to serve the local homeless community, coordinating and improving homeless efforts is truly an Agency-wide endeavor. To help guide this initiative, CHROME lays out a process HHSA can follow to maximize the overall impact of homeless efforts.

The causes of homelessness are complex and diverse. Many different programs exist to meet the unique challenges facing the homeless community. Unfortunately, the scale of the issue often dwarfs the amount of available resources. In response, policymakers, service providers, and government officials have recently identified coordination as key to promoting sustainability and overall impact of homeless efforts. Meaningful coordination is even highlighted in the federal homelessness strategic plan as “one of the most important developments” in regional homeless efforts in recent years.

In line with this development, the HHSA Homeless Initiatives Program has developed the County Homeless Roadmap on Maximizing Efficiencies (CHROME) to help guide the coordination and improvement of Agency homeless efforts. The CHROME lays out a multi-stage process intended to describe, measure, improve, and align HHSA Agency homeless efforts. While many different HHSA programs and staff do tremendous work to serve the local homeless community, coordinating and improving homeless efforts is truly an Agency-wide endeavor. Moving forward, the CHROME formalizes an inaugural approach to help ensure HHSA aligns its homeless efforts internally and with external partners.
