Misconceptions CoCs may think that WIBs should take unskilled persons, train them, and get them into well-paying jobs with benefits. And do it all now. WIBs dont care about persons experiencing homelessness. WIBs dont understand our financial and regulatory constraints. WIBs may think CoCs should get their customers into affordable, decent housing today, and solve all their other problems too. And do it right now. CoCs expect us to perform miracles with high-barrier clients. CoCs dont understand our financial and regulatory constraints. © 2013 Spannaus Consulting

The Crosswalk Concept The Vision: Each CoC with an employment liaison, and each LWIA with a homelessness liaison The Goal: Joint case coordination Unified goals for housing, service and employment Joint staffings Whats the point? People do better with housing when they are working towards stable employment. People do better in employment & training programs when they are stably housed. © 2013 Spannaus Consulting
