Participation in the work of the Coalition is open to any agencies, organizations, and individuals with expertise or interest in rendering homelessness brief, rare, and non-recurring. Agencies may have one or more members from their organization participating. Membership should represent the entirety of Salt Lake Valley. Additional collaboration to improve the statewide homeless service system should also be reflected in the members.
The Coalition was created based upon the following values: -Fair, diverse representation of all related stakeholders, centered on inclusion.-Continuity and flow of information to and from State to local level.-Checks and balances exist throughout the system.-Voices of participants with lived experience are present and meaningful.-Trauma informed care is central to the actions of all stakeholders.-Transparency in roles, responsibilities, decision making and membership are paramount.
The Coalition meets on a regular basis to discuss, review data, and make recommendations regarding homeless system issues. The first meeting will be held on April 10th at 8:30am at the Salt Lake County Government Center.
To join the Coalition, please complete the information below.
Members of the Core Function Groups represent all aspects of the Salt Lake Valley homeless service system, with a goal to end homelessness in all its forms throughout Salt Lake Valley. This will be accomplished through community consensus, partnerships, cooperation and a shared vision of ending homelessness as quickly as possible.
Please review the Core Functions (green boxes) in the image below and select the areas that best fit for you. While you may select more than one core function, please note that your time commitment increases for each core function you plan to participate in.
With key decisions already made from the Steering Committee (such as adherence to a Housing First model, need for Coordinated Entry/Exit plan, etc.), task group recommendations become much more focused.
