North Carolina Coalition to End Homelessness

Effective HPRP Case Management for Housing Stability

Join NCCEH & Melissa Mowery, Program Director for CAMBA's HomeBase, for a one-day training covering the ins & outs of effective case management for Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-Housing Programs. 
 
Ms. Mowery is a national leader in creating programs that offer rental assistance and case management. Much of the homeless field's and HUD's understanding of what HPRP assistance should look like comes from CAMBA's HomeBase, which provides rapid re-housing, aftercare and prevention services to families and adults in New York City.
 
Don't miss out on this opportunity to learn from one of the nation's leading experts about this innovative new delivery system that will continue to grow as we improve the homeless & housing assistance system. 
 
Who should come?
Case Managers & Supervisors who are being funding through HPRP grants and others who are doing homelessness prevention and rapid rehousing work through other funding.
 
What topics will be covered?
  • How do I know I'm targeting the right population? 
  • Which households are good candidates for HPRP assistance? 
  • What kind of subsidy should I give? Deep? Shallow? How many months? 
  • What kind of services should I offer? How do I know how much is enough? How much is too much? 
  • How do we create an exit strategy for the household upon intake/assessment?
  • How is this work-- getting people housed-- different from getting people ready to be housed?
  •  And many more key insights from one of the pioneers of HPRP!

She has coached Special Olympians, worked with mentally ill adults and juvenile offenders, and worked on workforce development and vocational training with Asylees, Refugees, and those receiving public benefits. Ms. Mowery is currently the program director for CAMBA's HomeBase, a homeless prevention program funded by the Department of Homeless Services in New York City. This program provides rapid re-housing, aftercare and prevention services to those families and adults most likely to enter shelter. It offers the support and knowledge needed to keep households stable and strong. This program was designed by Mayor Bloomberg's Administration to confront the assumption that homelessness was simply a fixture of urban life.
