This survey is designed for staff members and volunteers of provider agencies that work “on the ground” with homeless families, including program directors, team leaders, case managers and the like. This assessment will ask various questions about your homelessness system and your opinions regarding it. Your answers will be aggregated with those of other users in your system. Please answer each question on the assessment and take all the time you need to answer each question accurately, from your perspective. Note that some questions refer to your community, others to your organization, and still others directly to you. Also, note that the survey refers to “consumers” which is an all-encompassing and general term to capture the ways in which various organizations may refer to the people they work with and serve, including: clients, service users, program participants, guests, tenants, persons with lived experience, etc.

Please forward this email to staff and colleagues who work directly with referring homeless individuals and families to services.  Our apologies for any duplicate emails you may have received, we are attempting to disseminate the information to as many providers as possible.

Please complete the survey by Monday, May 6th, 2013. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact
