EXHIBIT A – SCOPE OF SERVICES
I. THREE PROGRAMS.
OlyCAP will operate three different programs for homeless persons that are detailed below with different priorities:
A. Homeless Shelter. OlyCAP will operate a homeless shelter with a priority to assist individuals who are homeless.
X. Xxxxxx Street Cottages. OlyCAP will operate the Xxxxxx Street Cottages for homeless persons, with a priority to assist families who are homeless.
C. Housing Assistance. OlyCAP will operate a housing assistance program for homeless persons, with a priority to assist families who are homeless.
II. HOMELESS SHELTER OPERATIONS.
A. Priority. The priority of this program is to assist individuals who are homeless, with particular priority for US military veterans, physically disabled persons, persons aged 65 and older, and victims of domestic violence.
B. Mission. OlyCAP’s mission through the Shelter is to provide emergency shelter for the homeless, and within each client’s capability, to help guide the clients to service resources to help them set and achieve everything and anything to overcome what led them to homelessness. The goal is for the client to achieve self-sufficiency and permanent housing.
C. Shelter Operations. OlyCAP will operate a Homeless Shelter to provide overnight sleeping accommodations within the Shelter’s bed capacity for homeless persons from November 1, 2018 through the morning of April 1, 2020 at the Shelter in the basement of the American Legion, Xxxxxx X Xxxxxxx Memorial Post #26 located at 000 Xxxxxx Xxxxxx in Port Xxxxxxxx. From April 1 through April 30, 2020 while the Shelter is closed, OlyCAP will conduct a cleanup of the Shelter facility and close out operations under this Agreement.
D. Case Manager. An OlyCAP case manager will be on site five days per week for four or more hours per day, and consistent with a client’s capability, will provide assistance to services to help the client transition into permanent housing. Working with the case manager the client will be able to regain self-reliance to live independently in permanent housing. By being able to come and stay at the shelter, it allows the case manager access to the client to triage them, and to assess and prioritize their needs. Case managers are trained in best practices. Based on a client assessment, and using other OlyCAP funding resources, a case manager helps the client obtain needed services like bus passes, laundry vouchers, either directly, or by referral to an agency that has those services. Case managers work with willing clients on their housing needs through a housing plan, and together,
the case manager and client will identify available housing and subsidies, which helps the client learn housing search skills.
E. Hours. Starting November 1, 2018, OlyCAP will operate the Shelter at the American Legion each evening starting no later than 7:00 p.m. and close it in the morning no earlier than 7:00 a.m., except for daytime services noted below which may take place after closure, later in the day. Hours may be modified with written approval of the County.
F. Supervision Required. OlyCAP will provide for appropriate supervision and monitors for the Shelter.
G. Beds. The total number of beds for clients at the Shelter will be up to 37 total, including up to 13 beds for women (10 beds for women, plus 3 overflow cots for women) and up to 24 beds for men (20 beds, 2 of which are in the sick room, for men, plus 4 overflow cots for men). Clients will be provided beds or cots with clean sheets for sleeping, along with blankets, a pillow, and pillowcase.
H. Winter Meals and Coordination with COAST. Winter operations will include three meals per day, provided in coordination with COAST.
I. Summer Meals. During summer operations, for those clients who have not eaten and are hungry, OlyCAP will supply soup, oatmeal, and cereals, and other foods as may be available, as well as access to an area for preparing food.
J. Toiletries and Other Essentials. OlyCAP with assistance from COAST may provide toiletries and other essentials to meet basic needs for the clients.
K. Other Services. In-house services for clients also include showers, and a clothing exchange, as well as TV, books and games. OlyCAP will also manage the Shelter facility to provide community showers twice per week, and will allow hosting of AA and NA meetings at the Shelter.
L. Access to Mental Health, DV, and Veteran Services. Access will be provided to resources through referrals for needed services (Mental Health, DV, and Veteran services,) some on site and some through referrals.
M. Rules of Conduct Required. OlyCAP will manage the Shelter pursuant to Rules of Conduct for clients. OlyCAP may modify the Rules as necessary to ensure smooth operations of the Shelter. OlyCAP may refuse shelter access to any individual for lack of space, previous exclusion, or other causes such as violation of Shelter Rules of Conduct. Termination of access to the shelter may be challenged using OlyCAP's Grievance Procedure.
N. Compliance. OlyCAP will operate the Shelter in compliance with applicable federal, state and local rules, regulations and permits, and in compliance with any Shelter facility agreement with the facility owner, the American Legion, Post 26.
III. XXXXXX STREET COTTAGES
A. Priority. This program provides continuous housing for up to 24 months and other housing assistance to homeless persons, with a priority on families who are homeless that may include families with a male parent.
B. Mission. The goal and outcome is for homeless persons to become stable and self-sufficient and move them along the housing continuum.
C. Operations. Starting October 1, 2018, OlyCAP will provide shelter for homeless persons at the Xxxxxx Street Cottages, and provide case management and access to available support services.
D. Case Manager. OlyCAP will provide full time case managers, who are trained in best practices to help identify needs for the client, stabilize them and help them transition into permanent housing. Many of the clients entering the Xxxxxx Street Cottages shelter are traumatized and need time to stabilize before the case manager can start working on the clients goals to help get into permanent housing. Case managers work with homeless persons to stabilize them and work with them to enable them to achieve success through setting and working towards their goals, and overcoming the challenges that lead them to being homeless. The case manager and the client work towards getting them into their own permanent housing and employment.
E. Maximum Stay. At the Xxxxxx Street Cottages, OlyCAP will house homeless persons, clean and sober, for up to a 24-month maximum stay.
F. Partner Agencies. The Xxxxxx Street Cottages provides all of our community partner agencies (such as DOC, JAIL, Sheriff’s Dept., Police Dept., Hospital, DSHS, Courts, Safe Harbor, Believe in recovery, Discovery Behavior Health, CPS, DOVE House, churches and advocates throughout the community) a place to temporarily house homeless persons in crisis and experiencing homelessness.
G. Referrals. OlyCAP will receive referrals of eligible homeless persons from the courts, Safe Harbor, DOVE house, the State DOC, local law enforcement and County Jail, churches, mental health providers and Jefferson Healthcare.
H. Access to Services. Clients will have access to needed services, bus passes, laundry voucher, help with cost of service for medical, dental, and eye exams.
IV. HOUSING ASSISTANCE
A. Priority. This program assists homeless persons, with a priority on families who are homeless.
B. Mission. The Housing Assistance program provides supports to homeless persons and to a number of the other programs that provide services that stabilize and transition homeless persons into permanent housing; it also helps support shelter case management, and provides training for housing staff on best practices.
C. Case Manager. An OlyCAP case manager works with the homeless person to help set goals and transition into permanent housing and self-sufficiency as soon as possible. OlyCAP will prioritize which homeless persons receive these services by coordinated entry, which evaluates each homeless person by a vulnerability assessment, and which scores the most vulnerable.
D. Hotel/Motel. The Housing Assistance program provides hotel/motel stays for homeless persons. Housing Assistance provides important overflow capacity by placing homeless persons in local hotels/motels.
E. Vouchers. The Housing Assistance program provides vouchers to house the most vulnerable homeless persons. Vouchers that pay for temporarily hotel/motel stays for homeless persons also helps sustain local business partners such as The Old Alcohol Plant/Bayside Housing, Port Xxxxxxxx Inn, Harborside Inn, Xxxxxxx Hotel, Aladdin Hotel and Tides Inn.
F. Direct Support. Housing Assistance also provides direct support to stabilize clients, such as bus passes, laundry vouchers and other supports to clothe and feed a family and enable them to maintain shelter and maintain employment.
G. Supportive Services for Veterans and their Families (SSVF) and Crossroad Permanent Solution. Housing Assistance, funded by the document recording fees, will also fill a critical funding gap for two housing continuum programs: Supportive Services for Veterans and their Families (SSVF), which is rental assistance to veterans, and Crossroad Permanent Solution, which is rental assistance for people who are homeless and disabled. Housing Assistance will fill funding gaps in these programs necessary for their administration, by filling a partial shortfall to achieve OlyCAP’s federally approved and audited indirect cost rate.
