Healthy Community Collaborative (HCC) • Project Goal: House and coordinate care of persons who are homeless and have a mental illness or co-occurring psychiatric and substance use disorder • Main objectives: • Implement “coordinated assessment” • Engage clients in MHSA and wraparound services • House the most vulnerable persons in PSH • Manage data quality and analysis

  4. Data Collection • Total number clients for select services • Mental health service data • Service and assessment data for PSH clients • Verified reliability and validity of data

  10. Challenges for Evaluators • Creating shared definitions of data elements • Verifying data • Managing and cleaning non-uniform data • Differing levels of capacity and project development • Chain of communication and organizational bureaucracy

  11. Challenges for Implementing ‘Housing First’ • Limited housing stock • Building trust with property managers • Promoting engagement in MHSA services • Finding clients once housing is available • Providing services off-site

  12. Lessons Learned for Evaluation Evaluation Design • Being present from beginning is ideal Data Management & Collection • Data definitions, reviewing, data cleaning and preparation were time intensive activities • Sites need time to create data collection and reporting procedures ‘Usability’ of Results • Allow feedback from entities • Present results in clear, understandable visuals
