Field Instructors for MSW Homeless and Housing Provider Internship Placement Program

Description:

CSH launched a pilot program in 2018 to bolster the capacity and talent pool for service provision and supervisory positions by engaging and supporting social work students through internships with our networks of homeless and supportive housing providers in Los Angeles County. CSH plays an intermediary role, focusing on creating the necessary system alignment between the schools and the nonprofit agencies. By doing so, our goal is to create an easy pathway for the stakeholders (universities, service providers, BSW and MSW students, and supervising clinicians) to best train, match, place, support, and ultimately hire the next generation of supportive housing and homeless service providers. CSH is looking to contract with experienced external MSW Field Instructors to provide instruction to students whose field placements require external supervision to ensure that they meet their educational requirements.

Planned activities:

  1. Provide weekly field supervision with social work interns students to ensure educational and field placement objectives are met for compliance and overall positive internship experience
  2. Activities beyond student supervision includes process recordings and analysis, coordination with nonprofit representative or preceptor, and student paperwork such as learning agreement and comprehensive skills evaluation to support MSW students participating in pilot

Expected Outcomes, Milestones, and Deliverables:

Deliverable 1: Conduct individual, hour-long weekly field supervision meetings (in-person or virtual, as required by university student affiliation) to ensure compliance, working toward student graduation requirements. Conduct or connect student to group supervision resources as a supplement to student’s weekly individual supervision upon discussion with CSH

Deliverable 2: Work with CSH partners, university field faculty and participating nonprofit providers to develop and deploy internship expectations, student learning agreement and secure working relationship with preceptor

Deliverable 3: Coordinate as needed with field faculty and agency preceptors for field assignments, projects, site visits, process recording review, learning agreement, and evaluation discussions during academic year 2018-19.

Funding Available:

Hourly rate of $90/hr. Not to exceed 2 hours per week per student. An amount not to exceed $2,700 per student is available for this project over the duration of 15 weeks of first semester field placement in the academic year 2018-2019. Total funding for this subcontracting opportunity not to exceed $40,500.

Application Process and Vendor Requirements:

To apply for this opportunity email Dara Papel at dara.papel@csh.org on or before July 23, 2018.

Applications received before the deadline will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Demonstrated successful performance of substantially similar work
  • Relevant project work
  • Experience and expertise
  • Years of relevant experience
  • Rate reasonableness and overall cost of services
  • Special consideration will be given to small, disadvantaged, minority or women-owned businesses

David Howden Named New Director in LA

CSH has promoted David Howden to Director of the Los Angeles program. David’s tenure with CSH, his dedication to our work, and his extensive system knowledge and relationships in the community will be incredible assets in taking us to the next level in this extraordinary journey for CSH Los Angeles.

David has close to 20 years of experience in assisting communities with sound strategies to address and end homelessness. He has taken this solid background to a new level in LA. As a Senior Program Manager and then Acting Director, he has worked closely with public and private sector partners to align systems and increase resources. He has spearheaded efforts to strengthen the capacity of service providers and developers to bring supportive housing to scale.

David was a recognized leader in the two successful referenda to raise billions to pay for new supportive housing and services, and was instrumental in forging a partnership and Memorandum of Understanding between the City and County that will serve as the dynamic framework for ending homelessness in LA.

Over the past few years, David has worked with our Home for Good partners to design a Coordinated Entry System (CES) throughout the region. David also led a community-based planning effort to develop a regional homeless strategic plan for San Gabriel Valley, which included both a comprehensive needs assessment and an implementation strategy.

Prior to joining CSH, David was with the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, where he was Funding Manager from 2001 to 2008. His responsibilities included oversight of the annual Continuum of Care Homeless Assistance Programs application for one of the largest Continuums in the United States.

We are very proud of what David and the CSH team in Los Angeles are accomplishing together and look forward to their even greater impact and success in the future.

2018 California Policy Priorities

CSH 2018 California Policy Priorities

CSH is continuing to lead the way on efforts to improve State homelessness response and supportive housing policies in California. Our priorities for the 2018 State Legislature are based on our commitment to ensure new resources to address homelessness have the greatest impact. As such, we are strongly supporting and urging State lawmakers to adopt:

  1. AB 2162 (Chiu & Daly): Streamline development of supportive housing. Finding sites where supportive housing can be feasibly developed is challenging, particularly in jurisdictions that can deny or delay approval of projects based on Not-in-My-Backyard pushback or city councilmembers reticent to address the needs of homeless residents. Assembly Bill 2162 would create a by right, expedited process for approving building applications for supportive housing, reducing costs and time it takes to site supportive housing for our most vulnerable, and sometimes hardest-to-serve, populations.
    Read our Fact Sheet on AB 2162

  1. Budget Item for SB 2, Year 1 Funding: Foster sustainable investment in rental assistance and operating subsidies for chronically homeless Californians. In September 2017, Governor Brown signed Senate Bill 2 (Atkins), which creates a document recording fee on all real-estate transactions, except sales, as a permanent source of funding for affordable housing in California. Under the legislation, proceeds from the fees collected in 2019 and beyond will largely go directly to cities and counties for a range of allowable uses. However, HCD will allocate half of all fees collected in 2018, estimated to total $125 million, to address homelessness. CSH is joining the co-sponsors of SB 2 to advocate for this one-time investment create a sustainable grant to jurisdictions agreeing to invest in these programs through ongoing local SB 2 allocations. Grant funding would spur or boost flexible housing pools, create more supportive housing projects, and move chronically homeless Californians into housing as quickly as possible. Placing this program within the recently-created Housing for a Healthy California Program would allow a rigorous evaluation that would track changes in Medi-Cal costs from moving chronically homeless people to housing stability.
    Comments on the bill.

 

  1. SB 918 (Wiener): Fund programs to end youth homelessness. Homelessness among youth is increasing at alarming rates in California. Yet, more than half of our counties have any systems or programs in place to address the unique needs of this population. Senate Bill 918 would create a new grant to fund programs offering an array of interventions for homeless youth, using State General Funds and revenues from a new marijuana tax. It would also create a new Office of Homeless Youth, to align homeless youth programs with mainstream systems and housing programs the State already administers.

  1. SB 1010 (Beall): Create sustainable funding for community-based treatment and services, including housing, for vulnerable parolees. Homeless parolees are seven times more likely to recidivate than housed parolees. Decades of research shows supportive housing is far more effective than group, transitional, or sober living housing, yet our corrections systems relies on the latter models for all parolees. Using existing resources, SB 1010 (Beall) would create a pilot providing supportive housing to parolees to address the needs of homeless parolees and document reduced recidivism. The pilot would test outcomes and barriers from moving parolees from mental health treatment funded wholly by the State, to a community-based mental health treatment approach, where parolees would receive mental health treatment from the county in which they will be living beyond the term of parole. With savings realized from 50-90% federal reimbursement for mental health treatment, the State could fund housing with services for the term of parole, and partner with counties to ensure parolees are able to continue to recover, after parole ends, in stable housing.

LA Health & Housing Symposium Part II

Last October, CSH convened the first of three Los Angeles Health and Housing Symposiums at the California Community Foundation’s Palevsky Center.

The second – Part II – was held today in LA at that same venue, where CSH highlighted health and housing organizations that are successfully coordinating care for homeless Medi-Cal beneficiaries.

A packed house learned from national and local experts how healthcare institutions are collaborating with federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), homeless services providers, and supportive housing providers to serve beneficiaries experiencing homelessness.

Several panelists and presenters discussed the nuts and bolts of deepening community partnerships, clarifying partner roles, and expanding and sustaining integrated services for homeless beneficiaries in today’s fast-moving environment.

Did you miss the first Symposium – Part I ? Materials from that forum are listed below:

LA Health & Housing Symposium

CSH convened the first of three Los Angeles Health and Housing Symposium on October 23, 2017 at  the California Community Foundation. CSH brought together over 50 health and housing organizations involved with coordinated care for homeless Medi-Cal beneficiaries to collaborate on new Los Angeles County initiatives (Measure H, Whole Person Care LA, Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System).

The Symposium was well attended – the room was packed with over 100 healthcare and housing leaders from across the County, including 48% from the healthcare sector (i.e., MCOs, hospitals, FQHCs, and the Los Angeles County Health Agency) and 52% from homeless services and supportive housing (i.e., homeless services providers, supportive housing developers, and the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority).

This first of the three-part symposia focused on level-setting, with the goal to increase collective understanding of how healthcare institutions can collaborate with homeless services providers to access Measure H (County ¼-cent sales tax), Whole Person Care LA (1115 waiver), and Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (1115 waiver) networks to better serve their members experiencing homelessness.

The opening discussion was dedicated to sharing outcomes and best practices in collaboration from the Los Angeles 10th Decile Project (2011-17), which created robust health and housing collaborations to house and case manage high-acuity patients. Presenters shared two diagrams that map the new set of resources coming into Los Angeles County – to set the table for the second hour presentations on Measure H, Whole Person Care, Drug Medi-Cal and Coordinated Entry as the gateway for services and housing.

 

In the third hour, participants engaged in a dynamic give-and-take that focused in each Service Planning Area (SPA), and reported next steps, which include: strengthening communication and collaboration with SPAs; conducting inventories of service gaps, exploring co-location, building more regional resources; and standardizing high-utilizer projects.

The main takeaways from the first Symposium were:

  • very strong demand for information and education around the relationship between the new health and housing funding streams, and people feel (rightly) that things are moving very quickly; CSH can play a role in education and communication across funding streams
  • strong desire in 6 of the 8 SPAs to move forward on integrating health and housing: SPAs 2, 4, 5 are further along while SPAs 3, 6, 8 are just beginning (see next steps above)
  • interest from CSH partner hospitals and MCO partners in partnering, but others need to be engaged
  • workforce issues like shortages and burn-out are a big concern as H and WPC ramps up
  • existing gaps in system: warm handoffs still difficult, inability to make real-time connections to PCPs, lack of access to specialty care, lack of 24/7 services, funding for highest-acuity/delay in HHP, lack of data sharing agreements between hospitals and HMIS

The ultimate goals of the symposia are to foster and deepen partnerships between the healthcare and housing sectors and to inspire and inform long-term commitments to expanding integrated services for homeless frequent users by moving to shared problem-solving across sectors.

The next Symposium will take place on January 23, 2017 at the California Community Foundation, and will focus on how to create, structure, and problem-solve together by mining existing partnerships between homeless services providers, FQHCs, and hospitals, and between county health and housing systems and managed care organizations.

The third Symposium in April will focus on co-occurring disorders, workforce, and data sharing.

“Just in Reach” Supportive Housing

Los Angeles County Launches “Just in Reach” Supportive Housing Program

to Break Cycles of Homelessness and Re-Incarceration

Innovative public-private partnership uses “Pay for Success” financing model

to maximize public resources and ensure positive outcomes for individuals

Los Angeles County has launched Just in Reach (JIR), a new health-based housing program that will reduce jail recidivism and help end homelessness among people experiencing repeat jail stays. Over four years, JIR will place 300 homeless individuals who are currently in custody within the county jail and who have a mental health and/or substance-use disorder into permanent supportive housing.

The innovative public-private partnership is the region’s first program to be funded through a “Pay for Success” financial model. Pay for Success uses up-front private funding to ensure the most positive outcomes for individuals and communities, reduce the financial risk to government, and maximize public resources.

The initiative’s key partners include the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (DHS), CSH and the National Council on Crime & Delinquency (NCCD), in partnership with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) and the County CEO’s Office (CEO). The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and UnitedHealthcare have invested a combined $10 million in the program. Awards from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the California Board of State and Community Corrections will support various program activities and evaluative work. Through Nonprofit Finance Fund, the James Irvine Foundation provided grant funding to engage Third Sector Capital Partners, which conducted the feasibility assessment and contributed to the financial modeling for the Pay for Success contract.

How It Works

Just in Reach builds on the success of two DHS initiatives: the Office of Diversion and Reentry, whose mission is to divert people living with a mental and/or substance-use disorder away from the justice system and into community-based treatment; and the Housing for Health program, which has provided supportive housing to over 3,500 people, 96% of whom have remained in housing for 12 months or more.

The program will be managed by the Office of Diversion and Reentry. Along with receiving permanent supportive housing, people who are participating in the program will be connected to mental health, substance-use treatment, and physical health services. Additionally, they will receive intensive case management before, during and after securing housing to help them remain housed and to reduce their likelihood of returning to jail.

“Nearly 60,000 people currently experience homelessness in LA County on any given night,” said Judge Peter Espinoza, Director of DHS’s Office of Diversion and Reentry. “For individuals cycling through our criminal justice system, overcoming homelessness can be deeply challenging and short-term fixes aren’t enough. Just in Reach is a huge step toward reducing re-incarceration by connecting people to permanent, stable homes.”

People struggling with homelessness and mental illness often find themselves going in and out of the criminal justice and emergency health care systems, rather than connected to the permanent solution of housing. This vicious cycle is costly and leads to poor health outcomes.

“Pay for Success financing is driving supportive housing with these innovations in other cities such as Denver,” said Deborah De Santis, CEO & President of CSH. “But the LA jail system is the largest in the nation and, through programs like Just in Reach, can be the leader in investing public, private and philanthropic resources into solutions we know benefit the entire community.”

An Innovative Financing Model

Just in Reach is unique in its “Pay for Success” funding structure, whereby the private sector provides up-front financing that is repaid by government only if agreed upon successes are achieved. Repayment is based on outcomes: if the program is successful (e.g. individuals are placed in and retain stable housing), government pays back the private funders. If the program is not successful, the private funders assume the loss of their investment.

“Just in Reach represents an exciting opportunity for LA County because it is so heavily grounded in what works to reduce recidivism,” said Kathy Park, Chief Executive Officer of NCCD. “The Pay for Success financing structure also relies on what works, ensuring that services lead to improved outcomes while also reducing housing and jail costs down the road.”

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, a regional leader in private philanthropy to end chronic homelessness, and UnitedHealthcare, a health and well-being company that serves more than 3.7 million people in California, have made a combined $10 million initial investment in Just in Reach.

“We’re excited to be part of this significant milestone for public-private partnership in LA County,” said Bill Pitkin, Director of Domestic Programs for the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, which has committed over $87 million since 2010 toward ending chronic homelessness in LA County. “The Foundation is proud to jumpstart another initiative within the county that lifts up supportive housing as the solution to the cycle of homelessness and recidivism — and this time through an innovative financial model.”

“UnitedHealthcare is investing in an innovative program that will give people access to quality supportive housing and help them live healthier lives,” said Bob Oberrender, Treasurer and Chief Investment Officer, UnitedHealth Group, which through its UnitedHealthcare business has committed more than $19 million to support affordable-housing programs in Los Angeles County in 2017. “Through partnerships like this we can help make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and their families affected by homelessness as a result of recidivism.”

As an alternative to up-front government funding, Pay for Success has the essential benefit of removing risk for government by having private investors finance initial costs and jumpstart innovative programs. Further, the model has enabled Los Angeles County to access state and federal resources not otherwise available.

Pay for Success has emerged as a viable strategy to finance supportive housing in places such as Los Angeles County, where there is a concerted and community-backed effort to end chronic homelessness. Pay for Success-funded projects that expand supportive housing are currently being implemented in Denver, Santa Clara and Massachusetts.
