We have a singular goal — end chronic homelessness in Seattle through Housing First/Permanent Supportive Housing within 5 years.
Identifying needs: What are the needs? What funds are desirable and for what purposes?
Optimal number of PSH units, capital and operating costs to sustain PSH
Third Door Coalition funding for administrative support, research, projects
E.g., Social investment firms, social impact bonds, Opportunity Zones
Myth-busting: What are the myths about homelessness? How can we use data to deconstruct such myths?
Education: How can we use data to educate ourselves and others? How can we make this data accessible? Create visual aids?
Speaking engagements and events: Us sharing information with others; others sharing information with us
Assess and evaluate: What are the laws and policies that make chronic homelessness better or worse? How do our laws and regulations make Housing First and Permanent Supportive Housing more or less feasible?
Advocate: Use and share the analyses we form to create better outcomes.
Technology: How can it help? How can our current systems be improved?
Data: What can we do to better collect, interpret, and share data?
Partnering with other systems: How can we best partner with the city? The county? Healthcare? Technology? Other entities working on homelessness?
How can we make PSH faster and cheaper to build and implement?
