An assessment process is used to prioritize and provide appropriate levels of internal shared case-management support that is externally integrated with a spectrum of interventions in the housing stability system. Frontline Support Workers each manage a caseload of 8-12 residents. We use harm reduction and trauma-informed practices, promote choice and self-determination for residents, utilize motivational interviewing and assertive engagement techniques to complete a housing and support assessment, prepare a housing and support plan, become paper ready (i.e. ensure a current assessment, income verification, and identification are secured), find suitable housing and navigate the system to secure housing, and connect to appropriate community services and resources.

Whatever-it-takes supports include medical, legal, income, landlord/tenant, family/CAS, mental health, addictions, life skills and connecting individuals to appropriate medical, mental health, age, race, and gender wrap-around supports in community. It means using eerie available community resource. It means working from a harm-reduction and low-barrier perspective to meet people where they are at and work with them from a place of respect to meet their needs.
