  • A 100,000 Home Campaign Registry Week as Explained by LA Director, Beth Sandor
    Vulnerability Index questionnaire This process occurs early in the morning usually between the hours of 4 and 7 a m to ensure that those surveyed are among the unsheltered homeless population Some communities have also surveyed in shelters but as a general rule we find that the most vulnerable people tend to sleep outside any good experiences with payday loans Once volunteers return to local Registry Week headquarters with their completed surveys additional volunteers begin entering results into our national database As of today this database contains close to 20 000 surveys with homeless people across the country Roughly 43 percent of those surveyed have at least one condition that spikes their risk of death Data entry is a critical task because communities can t build their prioritized lists until each person surveyed is in the system Once communities have a full ordered list of the most vulnerable people on their streets they can begin targeting their resources in a way that maximizes lives and public dollars saved Each Registry Week ends with an open community briefing and press conference Think of it as a chance for the whole community to focus on homelessness for an afternoon A Campaign staffer or a local partner leads the briefing and shares among other things the results of the surveying efforts Community members are often moved by learning how many veterans are on their streets or how many of their homeless neighbors are living with cancer This information turns homelessness from an abstract problem to an urgent moral crisis Often people who have never worked with homeless people before become committed advocates after attending a Registry Week community briefing Finally Registry Week ends and the work of housing begins Communities are typically eager to put the data and resources gathered during Registry Week to use as they start housing their most vulnerable homeless residents In some places local leaders have even moved people into permanent housing within days of completing their surveying efforts This is what the Campaign is about connecting vulnerable people to the homes and support they need to thrive With several Registry Weeks planned throughout the summer Los Angeles is facing an exciting moment in the history of local homelessness I encourage you to visit homeforgoodla org or 100khomes org to find out how you can get involved in your local effort and make a difference in the lives of homeless people in your community Leave a Reply Cancel reply Send Us Message Full Name Email Address Website Message You may use these HTML tags and attributes a href title abbr title acronym title b blockquote cite cite code del datetime em i q cite s strike strong SEND MESSAGE About H ome For Good is an Action Plan to end chronic and veteran homelessness in L A County by 2016 The plan was launched in December 2010 by the Business Leader s Task Force on Homelessness a partnership of United Way of Greater Los Angeles and the Los Angeles

  • IN MEMORY OF HELMUT NIKOLAUS HERMANS JUNE 16, 1930 TO AUGUST 11, 2011
    He was ranked as first on the list of those most likely to perish on the streets of Hollywood unless we could get him into housing Over the next two weeks or so several of us would visit him almost daily Mostly it was me or our good friends at PATH People Assisting the Homeless As is the case with those who settle into their life of homelessness there is a resistance to deviating from a life that has become somewhat routinized and predictable I would say to Helmut Helmut you simply cannot live out here on this bench for the rest of your life He would chuckle and say you are so kind but I have survived the winter and now it will become warmer and I will be fine I looked at 80 year old Helmut and thought about my own father who had just passed from melanoma six months prior at a similar age and could not stop thinking for a moment about the parallels Helmut didn t realize it but failure was not an option and he had met someone who was bound and determined to bring him inside Fortunately in Hollywood we had the seedlings planted of a team that would grow to make huge inroads on matching people to permanent housing I knew that if Helmut was willing our dear friends at GettLove would bring him in off the street into a SRO hotel on Wilcox that could serve as a home base for us to keep him stabilized safe and under our watch until we could find an apartment And that is exactly what transpired We found Helmut wearily pushing a shopping cart of his belongings at Selmaand Ivar one morning in May and he was exhausted Think for a moment how you would feel if you had lived outside for eight months sleeping on a bus bench through rain and cold eating breakfast at McDonald s and relying on the kindness of strangers for other comforts We surrounded him myself our BID Patrol officers and Sonny from GettLove and made him a deal how bout if you just stay the weekend at the hotel to get some rest and then you can leave and go back to your bus bench He thought about that and agreed Hurrah transparent Clearly there is more to this story But the purpose behind this vignette is to acknowledge that our dear friend Helmut Hermans born 81 years ago in Germany passed away on August 11 th of this year in his sun drenched brand new apartment on Bonnie Brae Avenue Helmut is pictured above in his apt on Bonnie Brae in November 2010 I was in New Jersey visiting my son when Sonny from GettLove called me with the news And all I could think about was this how bittersweet was the end to this story On the one hand our friend Helmut had passed but on the other hand he lived 10 months in his
