This is your friendly reminder that our Single Adults Advocacy Committee meets this Thursday, October 9 at 12-noon at the Plymouth’s Simons Apartments at 2119 3rd Ave (downtown Seattle), 2nd floor conference room.
We are thrilled to be joined by Kelli Larsen, Director of Strategic Initiatives at Plymouth and a Design Team member for the 25 Cities Initiative, who will share what is under discussion related to our community’s involvement in the national 25 Cities Initiative, designed to reduce homelessness among veterans and people who are chronically homeless. This includes how ’25 Cities’ relates to coordinated entry for single adults, and how we can be good informants and advocates as these policies, programs, and budgets are developed.
Prior to the meeting, please do the following:
- Review the Vulnerability Index & Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool (VI-SPDAT) so that you can provide your important feedback;
- Brainstorm your ideas about ways to improve the system that serves single adults who are homeless;
- And think through the ways in which a single adults coordinated entry system will be similar and different from the coordinated systems for youth and families.
We hope to see you there!
