Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board Foundation of Our Housing Development 1997 - large Consumer Housing Preference Study – we asked individuals and their families where they really wanted to live and what were their housing barriers Since then the HNNCSB went about delivering to consumers and their families what they asked for – as much as we could feasibly create, with the help of great partnerships such as our PHA’s, DHCD, VHDA, and HUD, and with great leadership on our agency and Board’s part 5

None are exclusively “Right” for everyone all the time. We had to develop the full continuum.

Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board PSH – Our Lessons Our PRIMARY PSH MODEL: Scattered Site Units in Private Market Complexes – Why? NO SITING ISSUES!!!!! – Supports a community of CHOICE! – Residents blend into the community! There is no building that is a target for NIMBY – Physical Features – Upstairs and downstairs units, preferably with a balcony or other enclosed outside space (that others can’t see) – No more than 2 bedrooms. Yes, one bedroom units are preferable, but usually the money goes further with 2 bedrooms. – Near/on bus lines – Near very inexpensive shopping options – FLEXIBLE! FLEXIBLE! FLEXIBLE! 15
Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board PSH – Our Lessons Property Management – EVERY ONE of our residents is “the Most Vulnerable” – They have criminal histories, no income, no credit, LOTS of issues – If we know one resident, then WE ONLY KNOW ONE RESIDENT – they are NOT the same! – And did we mention…. Mental illness, substance abuse disorders, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities???? – Property Management IS NOT! NOT! NOT! CASE MANAGEMENT!!! – Case Management IS NOT..NOT..NOT Property Management!! – But Property Management and Case Management/Support Services MUST work together constantly 16
Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board PSH – Our Lessons Property Management: Focus on LEASE!!! Don’t make the lease any more complicated than necessary – simple, short, readable! Know your funding sources requirements! Unless funding sources require a particular lease, KEEP IT SIMPLE! Always ask yourself WHY ARE WE REQUIRING “X”??? Whatever “X” is – like rent due date 17
Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board We offer MANY chances to succeed…. We ask ourselves “Would we agree to this?” We “SCREEN IN” …….. Not “SCREEN OUT” We are priest, doctor, nurse, mother, case manager, etc. no matter what I said earlier ….. But be very careful with this! We walk a fine line between compliance and looking out for our clients Support & Success takes a TEAM! The team has to include the client/resident. Sometimes the client/resident chooses to not follow the rules/lease…. Repeatedly… and risks the safety and security of the other residents. Yes….. We do evict residents….. Sadly, but with the knowledge that we have a HUGE waiting list of other people just waiting for their opportunity. And we leave the evicted person the possibility of re- applying in the future…. We do not permanently shut doors. We encourage residents to sign up for other housing options as quickly as possible, any time waiting lists are open. 18 PSH – Our Lessons
Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board Residential Achievement 19 Based on Lease – Actually follows Lease Sections. Notice – “I” not “YOU”
Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board PSH – Our Lessons Financing: – Learn everything you can about every source of funds available long BEFORE you need it. BEFORE you jump in! – Don’t chase the money….The money has to fit your project. – Focus on YOUR MISSION … Don’t Mission Drift just to get one grant or source of money. – Be active in your CoC! – PATIENCE…PATIENCE…PATIENCE! This can take years! Yes, years…. Just to get the financing! – Relationships …. Relationships….. Relationships!!! – Reputation is Critical! Protect Yours! – It takes a TEAM! 20
Hampton-Newport News Community Services Board Before Anything Else….. Know WHO you are going to serve and house – YES……Strong, resilient, survivors – BUT ALSO…..very fragile, wounded, hurt, damaged…. Vulnerable Know WHY you are going to serve and house the people you have targeted – If you are out to make money… you’re at the wrong conference – If you want an easy, stress-less job… you’re at the wrong conference Know WHAT their challenges are… and yours Then STAY FOCUSED on the answers above! 21
