3 P U R P O S E The goal of the Core Housing Team is to bring together a local community team that works with existing resources and landlords to rapidly re-housing people living in homelessness. Foremost, the Core Housing Team understands the crises homelessness presents to people and the urgency of re-housing. 3

4  Each team member understands his/her role and strategizes with other team members to efficiently use mainstream resources to re-housing people.  On a bi-annual basis the Core Housing Team reviews current homeless data and reviews the housing status of those that they have assisted.  The team acts as catalysis to improve systems to ensure rapid re-housing is achieved and that the household service needs are met. (MSHDA Housing Agents: This meeting is the second of two annual meetings that you are required to attended to fulfill the requirements of your contract with MSHDA.) 4 Core Housing Team
