4:05 am
teleconferencing, you pass this resolution to say we have gone through the motions and considered the dynamics. i will read the resolution. resolved that the our city our home oversight committee finds as follows. the state of california and the city remain in the state of emergency due to the covid-19 pandemic. at this meeting the our city, our home oversight committee considered the circumstances of the state of emergency. state and city officials continue to recommend measures to promote physical distancing and other social distancing measures, in some settings. because of the covid-19 pandemic conducting meetings would present implement risks to the safety of attendees. the state of emergency continues to directly impact the ability of members to meet safely in person. further resolved. that for at least the next

4:09 am
fall usually this happens in november. our november schedule got a little mixed up so we are doing this in december. committee members to review what is in the bylaws. you may nominate yourself or another member for any office. nominatedded members may decline the nomination. incumbent officers can nominate themselves to serve another term. there are no limits on the number of terms a committee member can serve in an officer role. to be elected to one of the officers, the office of vice chair the candidate must receive five votes. each office is voted separately beginning with the chair. one other thing i discovered while reading the bylaws.
4:10 am
the data officer role is named specifically. if the committee decides to change that name to planning officer or something else, we will have to do a by-laws change to make that happen. i know i have already heard from your current chair and vice chair williams and deantonioio are interested and willing to serve another term as chair and vice chair respectively. i will open it up for conversation about nominations. >> is a motion in order at this time? >> it will be. member ledbetter has a question.
4:11 am
>> sorry. i can't see because of the screen. i want to review. the creation of these by-laws were done by the committee itself in combination with the city attorney and controller's office. a little historical perspective. i think we spent time on the by-laws very briefly. i want to understand what the process for creating by-laws is. >> i don't know the answer. we have changed the bylaws once to change the meeting time. i think it is something the committee request do. i can look into it more. some are standard ways to do
4:12 am
business. i am not sure where those fall. is there something specific to look into? >> i think i am trying to get the listing of changing by-laws. it is an organic process here. it is pretty standard in district four. it is okay. >> when i look at things like no term limits. we might want to visit the housekeeping of committee. i don't think we need to do it now. i want a sense of what is our power and responsibility as chairs and officers and members and what is handed down to us from the city attorney and the standard practice of the city.
4:13 am
>> sure. i can check in with the city attorney. maybe we can calendar in the new year to revisit the bylaws. there may be a couple of things to talk about there. >> can i just jump in. i agree with julie we need to revisit. in the fact when you read through incumbent officers can nominate themselves or be nominated to serve another term. no limits on the number of terms a committee member can serve as an officer. i am assuming a semi colon could go there. we are only have an amount of time that our tenure exists. in accordance with the term of the member of our city, our home committee member.
4:14 am
it would warrant to reference back to the overall allowable tenure in accordance with the broader legislation. just an example how one would want to tighten that up a little bit more. >> happy to dig into this a little more and get some things on the schedule to make it a little clearer. >> honestly, i would want if we have a focused meeting on that i would question the no limit on the number of terms. i am not sure that is -- you know, one could make a case for no limit and why one would want
4:15 am
to have limits. term limits as a general concept can be argued on both sides. it would be great to have a balanced conversation why one would be better over the other in this particular situation for this advisory body. >> i am not seeing hands. are there other people waiting to talk? the other thing to look at is, for instance, now we have vacant seats. do we still need five votes? how does that work if there are seats at any given moment the board seats are left vacant for an extended period of time what does that mean for our quorum? annual election of officers
4:16 am
unless somebody leaves. i am happy to talk about that later. there is notic urgency right now. -- no particular urgency right now. >> i think it is a good idea to look at the by-laws once a year maybe outside of the time where we are down time. maybe summertime or something. you have got a lot of work to do. we have to make recommendations for the investment plan to pass the mayor's budget in february. i want to go back to the chair and vice chair roles or officer roles. i want to really give props to
4:17 am
our chair and vice chair who i just think have been amazing and put so much great work into it. i just feel so blessed we have such amazing leadership on this body. i am thrilled to hear that you guys are interested in continuing. i know the data officer we talked about earlier meeting around having julie lead better do that role at least until we see who else is getting the appointments. i think that is a wonderful idea as well. i don't know if we want more conversation or if i should make
4:18 am
a motion. we would have to vote on stuff individually. >> you did just, julie went through that process at the end of october. it didn't seem like we are doing this in december that was urgent. it would be great to get a vote on electing a chair and vice chair. >> two separate motions. i will make a motion to nominate the current chair william to the chairperson role for another term and separate motion to nominate current vice chair d'antonio to the vice chair for another term with a lot of appreciation and gratitude for all of the work that they have been doing already for the last
4:19 am
year. >> i would like to second also with much appreciation for both persons. >> we do need public comment. let's do that now unless there are other nominations. public comment. >> members of the public should call 415-655-0001 to comment. access code 24883506625. pound, pound. if you haven't done so dial star 3 to speak. the system prompt will indicate you have raised your hand. wait until you are unmuted to comment. you have three minutes. checking the list for hands raised. i don't see any. no public comments.
4:20 am
>> we have our motion and second. i think we can go to roll call vote then. >> andrews. >> yes. >> d'antonio yo. >> yes. >> friedenbach. >> yes. >> ledbetter. >> yes. >> miller absent. reggio. >> yes. >> chair williams. >> yes. >> each needs voted separately. does our vote count at the same time or do we need to do a second roll call? did we just elect both the chair and vice chair or just the chair? >> i think my reading of the
4:21 am
laws you do them one at a time in case people are nominated in multiple categories they can figure out where to land. this is pretty clean. >> i would say i have to disagree on that. >> you want be to do another vote. >> you need two separate votes. >> this piece is pretty clear. sorry. i hate to be a by-laws person. >> the motion was for both rolls. do we need to retake the first vote as well? >> i would send it back. >> separate motion. >> two motions. okay. >> i specifically did that for two separate votes. >> second vote then on the second motion was vice chair
4:22 am
d'antonio. >> correct. >> we are voting on vice chair. just vote on both. it will make it all cleaner. vote on the office of the chair first. andrews. >> yes. >> d'antonio. >> yes. >> friedenbach. >> yes. >> officer leadbetter. >> yes. >> miller. absent. >> reggio. >> yes. >> williams. >> yes. >> motion has passed. we will do a vote for vice chair now. >> andrews. >> yes. >> d'antonioio. >> yes. >> friedenbach. >> yes. >> leadbetter. >> yes. >> miller. absent. reggio.
4:23 am
>> yes. >> chair williams. >> yes. >> motion passed. >> thank you everyone. i feel honored to be in leadership of this body. it is amazing working with everyone. shout out to vice chair d'antonio. it is lovely working in partnership with her and i am looking forward to this year. we will move to item 5 which is presentation from the office of workforce development. we have the director here. i will turn it over to him. >> thank you, chair williams, committee members. i will turn it over to my colleague, deputy director at supportive housing -- director work force development.
4:24 am
it was the team that will be at the ready. turning it over to deputy director simons to hear about the great work by our partners. were you able to log onto the web ex? >> i am on. thank you for technical assistance. good morning. i am noel simons, she, her. chief deputy director at department of homelessness and supportive housing. update on the exciting work we have been doing to better integrate our homeless delivery and work force delivery systems. as josh alluded to a minute ago. we will hear in a moment from civic makers. a little background on that effort. last year i was not yet at hsh. at that time our human services
4:25 am
agency overseeing other things work force development services at hsa. i was following the committee deliberations and appreciated how the committee through the needs assessment and discussion lifted up the importance of thinking about pathways to employment and self-sufficient efficiency for people experiencing homelessness. the recognition that is a critical part of service delivery system. hsa, hsa for two years now have been working closely on this issue. with the assistance of the state work force accelerator fund grant we receive a year and a half ago, we brought on civic makers to work with different departments as well as with the collaborative community providers, homeless work force
4:26 am
commission. to engage in thoughtful and comprehensive planning process around the system for delivering employment services for homelessness. civic makers wrapped up the planning phase of the work. that is what they present to you in a moment. josh and i will come back on after the presentation to talk about the proxy investment and work force services. we are not quite ready for the slides. we will do those after civic makers. we would like to come back after the presentation to update the committee around the funding that you all carved out last year to provide employment services to our rapid rehousing clients. i will turn it over to josh for introductory remarks thensive
4:27 am
rick makers. >> thanks, noel. i am joined by jen who leads work at work force to coordinate as best we can with other agencies around work force system, integration not just different departments but the work we do with hsh and hsa and others around the best we can to align the work force system with the services provided to persons experiencing homelessness, exiting homelessness and most vulnerable community members on the streets that are served by this committee. in furtherance of that work and we will be joined in a moment by our director of workforce programs where our major grants are within our work force budget and portfolio with community service providers. this is a grant that was applied for together with hsh and hsa
4:28 am
and receive from the state to help us advance a few different ideas. the notion we are trying to build the system that is a system by which no door is a long door to accessing services broadly speaking and with respect to work force services to help advance housing security and economic self-sufficient see. it is appropriate to have the process with our housing providers and hsh partners. in a moment we will present what we think are powerful documents instead of findings, recommendations, process that civic makekers led in the work force accelerator grand. it is something that is going to
4:29 am
take by the state process of community feedback, surveys, listening sessions, conversations with employer, government, labor, stakeholders to think through ideas shared to do the best we can in this work together in this coordination. we have 15 minute presentation that will be presented by civic makers to have ample conversation and discussion and feedback and correction from the public and advocates. we will be back for a few minutes to provide additional context around the first round of investments in work force and where those resources are, where they are headed and looking for guidance as we continue to do these to support our vulnerable residents. please welcome chris.
4:30 am
>> i appreciate the opportunity to be here with you all. i will share my screen and get started. as she prepares the slides. imagine a system with access points to be that first point of
4:31 am
connection around exiting homelessness and creating a pathway to shelter, advancing strategies to get a roof over one's head. imagine job centers designed to be places where someone looking for a job or better job or to prepare myself for economic efficiency. how do we coordinate the efforts to the charge they are doing? >> thank you forbearing with me. i will jump right in since we have limited time. i am managing partner. small local business focused on inclusive collaborative decision making. we do a lot of work in san francisco. i will give the basics that josh and noel provided. jump forward to the purpose of the project to reiterate was to
4:32 am
improve employment outcomes for people experiencing homelessness by al lining the four systems with a focus on adding connections to employment and training for people experiencing homelessness and strengthening relationships across the system this. is our work plan which spans the last few years. desk research, stakeholder engagement, collaborative process, pilot programs, provider inventory, all findings in a provider friendly resource which is called the tool kit and service delivery model and set of recommendations. we begin research with stakeholder engagement. discovery phase to understand the context of san francisco and further to explore specific
4:33 am
topics, test assumptions and design recommendations. we had over 30 stakeholders with many meetings. this is a very long list. i will linger here for a moment to give you a sense of the many, many wonderful providers and city agencies we collaborated with throughout this process. we started the process in addition to stakeholder engagement throughout the entire process by researching national best practices and work force development for people experiencing homelessness and contextualizing for san francisco. we found seven organizing principles covering program entry through engagement and ongoing support. these include as shown on the slide nurturing interest, increasing income, maintaining
4:34 am
throw their hold for pathway for clients. employment specialist for individual support through employment at the employment pipeline. identifying strategies to address immediate barriers to employment. reducing barriers to care coordination within and a cross agencies and building pathways for self-sufficient see and career advancement. we found a critical component is addressing unique barriers by those experiencing homeless hom. these are the barriers. quotes below each is from a stakeholder we spoke with. top ones identified with. the many, many barriers and how long it can take to address those. limited access to technology especially during the pandemic. need for mental health services and managing ongoing housing
4:35 am
instability. in addition we compiled a longer list throughout the research that we continue to add to through our engagement. it included child care credit, financial literacy, confidence. limited personal and professional networks. we implemented a number of pilot programs aimed to connect people experiencing homeless necessary to employment opportunities to test research findings and practice. we ran three pilot programs. one in shelter-in-place hotels, one short term housing customers, one coordinated entry access. partners are shown here on the screen. what we found through the pilot programs it validated a lot of research we had done. confirmed and we discovered more
4:36 am
detail that we captured through throug what is important here. it confirmed the best practices are superimportant to follow for success. offering a job interest screener, short questionnaire to all clients coming through the door. warm and immediate referrals to employment. making sure the job readiness assessment is conducted by employment specialist who understands work force and what is available. consistent case management and sharing data and evaluating regularly. with the learning from the pilot program, best practices research and extent of stakeholder engagement we provided the tool kits to improve research sharing and referrals and practical
4:37 am
guidance. this is best practices. second be tool kit. service connections for people experiencing homelessness. this is really intended to help organizations not focus on work force to add connections to employment services. focused on the elements of the tool kit include a series of steps that would help providers that want to add this connection, integrate to their program. steps are accessing the need, choosing a model, building and designing program. implementing, monitoring and improving the program. we included three possible models for adding these connections. part of the design process to assess the organization which model is most appropriate for your organization.
4:38 am
there is a referral, comanager, collocated model and entirely in house model. third provider tool kit is intended for providers that specifically focus on employment and work force services. really focus on helping them improve capacity to serve people experiencing homelessness. some of the tools and resources we provide in the tool kit are motivational interviewing, benefits counseling, addressing barriers to employment and finding job opportunities specifically for people experiencing homelessness. in addition. we created a program inventory of all programs available to people experiencing homelessness across the system here in san francisco. the purpose of this is to make program details available to providers and city staff to facilitate better coordination
4:39 am
of care. also to inform ongoing efforts to make this information more easily accessible and help identify gaps in the system. in order to achieve this we codesigned a survey with providers. we sept it out to -- we sent it out to our list. we receive information about 55 programs in 28 organizations to service still open and anyone can fill it out at any time to add additional programs. from the survey results we created searchable online database open to the public. by language, service, geography and much, much more. we were tasked with recommendations for trauma informed care for those experiencing homelessness. we identified through our
4:40 am
research three work streams. trauma-informed design and programming and secondary trauma critical to the content of the trainings. we recommended four two hour sessions twice a year. making sure to integrate trauma informed design, dedicate one per session to be led by provider. that is important. giving those folks on the front lines a chance to shine. having city department representation such as dph which has been at the four front of this work for a long time. to wrap up. we recommended that moving forward we continue to socialize and share resources that we compiled here in an ongoing way. we offer training and coaching to build capacity throughout the
4:41 am
system. we further the research and piloting systems connections to continue to make improvements and rollout system-wide. we align funding without comes and evaluation metrics. thank you so much for having me. all resources are available at this link. >> thank you for the presentation. thank you for the amazing work of you and your team at civic makers. we appreciate it. i am sure there will be questions because you have done a great job of summarizing. we have a lot of time. i am going to turn it back to noel who is prepared to lead through the balance of the presentation from the city agencies. >> thank you for the presentation and for all of the
4:42 am
rich work that civic makers led us through over the last year. if we could bring up the three additional slides i would like to share with the committee. then we have a few minutes at the end for questions. thank you, jessica. as the committee will recall, through your deliberations last year, the committee carved out $1.2 million from the prop c housing bucket, specifically for work force services to add adult rapid rehousing clients. that was in recognition that the rapid rehousing clients need a source of income to sustain rent payments after the subsidy ends. that $1.2 million was named
4:43 am
available in january. there is another allocation bringing us to $2.5 million over two years. hsh made the decision to work order those funds to partners at oed as primary arm for work force service delivery in the city. it was jointly developed and within put from rapid rehousing providers. what i will present today is allocation plan for $1.25 million annually. some is granted out and some is in the process of being allocated. the portion granted out is half a million dollars to the front line essentials program. this is a nine week modified earn and learn model. you may recall that the committee had a lot of discussion about earn and learn and was very interested in that
4:44 am
model. that is why we went in this direction. that program got up and running. correct me if i am wrong. i believe early this fiscal year after being allocated. they have a few months of experience with the program serving this population. i will come back to that in a moment. we also have the remaining $750,000 per year is not granted out. we are in the process of doing so. $300,000 is earmarked to pay for three dedicated employment specialists. those individuals will be hired through the grantees through goodwill, the operator of the comprehensive job center and hospitality house one of the providers contracted specifically to serve vulnerable populations with work force
4:45 am
services. they will be collocated with the rapid housing providers so there is a immediate warm connection and they don't have to travel to another service location. the next $400,000 in this pot will be allocated to three different be neighborhood young adult and comprehensive job centers. they are part of the network. to set aside service slots for rapid rehousing clients referred by the employment specialists. the other $50,000 will go to those things that are to provide removal and other support services they need to get attached to employment. i want to pause to say in their first months of serving this population we heard feedback from ecs as well as one of our
4:46 am
other rapid housing providers. many of the clients they are serving are not ready to go straight to earn and learn training. they are where they would benefit from burial removal services and job readiness training before progressing to vocational training. this plan is responsive to that feedback. we know the committee was interested in earn and learn. we are still funding that model. we want to make sure we have services that are prepared to meet the clients where they are at. the thought is that some rapid rehousing clients may be the start with a job center with jrt abable to progress at later stage to earn and learn if that is the appropriate next step for them. the other thing that i would like to mention here is that we are hoping to get the committee's blessing on this.
4:47 am
these funds were specifically allocated to serve clients of adult rapid rehousing. we want to prioritize that group of clients. we are eager these dedicated service dollars are not under utilized. we recommend these dollars are able to serve a broader homeless population of job seekers as needed if we don't have enough referrals from the adult rapid rehousing provider. in fact, ecs already because they have not been able to get a critical map of clients ready for front line essentials have been serving other homeless job seekers they are touching in other programs. that $1.2 million carved out from the housing bucket was
4:48 am
allocated by this committee. we the 1-23 -- 21-23 budget said this was a priority for the committee and many who participated in the needs assessment be that the committee led. what hsh has done is carved out $5.8 million from prevention bucket to provide work force services to people experiencing homelessness. that $5.8 million is further broken out by population. $1.8 million over two years for youth. $2 million for families, $2 million for adults. this will facilitate connections to mainstream work force for problem serving. we would like to serve a broader population of homeless prevehicles clients as well with the committee's blessing.
4:49 am
we are looking to leverage to better integrate the homeless response. that is the work that was presented. we have a great planning document, tool kits, best practices identified. what we would like to do now is continue working with the help of consultant working with hsh and human services agency and community departments for a spending plan for the $5.8 million. we are moving quickly on that and hope to come back towards the first quarter of 2022 to share an update to this committee. josh, the last slide. >> the last slide before turning it back to the committee is to give a sense of the work force development investments that are
4:50 am
in our grant. the office of workforce development in the work force division. these are grants and programs with nonprofit service providers that include support to persons experiencing homelessness. in the case of job centers, those funds are not ex clussevor specific only to those experiencing homelessness. they are a large portion of community members we serve because of the intersection of the housing status, race, gender, disability, race, and so many factors. we have to acknowledge it is known as mythology to this committee that this is concentrated in one neighborhood or the other. it is a challenge that faces community members city-wide.
4:51 am
we pointer to resources where there are neighborhood job centers. we also know the unemployment claims numbers. those are individuals one resource away from homelessness, one paycheck away from homelessness. the resources without them someone could end up on the streets quickly. we identify the resources that connect the key part of the work we are doing together. a lot of the resources noel pointed to are augmenting the job center programs and grants that you see here. comprehensive. city-wide resource, neighborhood job centers in bayview and chinatown. the richmond, sunset,
4:52 am
tenderloin, western addition and job centers focuses through the great work of homeless young adults city-wide. they are supporting persons experiencing homelessness. there is an onramp program. back and forth i wanted to name everybody and the great work. it is a great program in the tenderloin. please, committee, if you want to know about individual programs. they are great community partners, prenatal and their work. we are happy to fund for the first time through our office. healthcare academy. compass family, work force equity, race and housing status specifically black homeless families. community health and arts with
4:53 am
homeless children's network and volunteer and paid opportunities around engagement apoutreach. the reason is to know that this is where resources allocated from prop c to hsh that we discussed. 2.5 is a good thing. we spent two years on the request for proposals that went out earlier this year. it was around racial equity so we have multi-year grants. prc. tremendous organization running multiple of these programs within our portfolio speak to this fact. it is a lot of work for the community partners to do the work, get in a contract with the city and county, it becomes a
4:54 am
yearly process. there are a lot of things left to be desired. they can be expanded to three or four year grants? that is why the funds 15 the first year and 185 the second. that is participants to be served with $2.5 million. we have two years. it is really important to share that there is work there with those community members. is slots are there and funds will be implemented. we do look to you and hearing from advocates the notion to make sure the resources are used and not leave slots on the table a year from now or another year and change from now. there is funding available to
4:55 am
support homelessness generally. we want to think we know how those are used. it is more funding available and the committee might administrator with respect to the resources. these grants can be augmented without having to go back to a whole new r.f.p. that can be six months or more. flexibility to add additional enrollment. it provides more speed. the urgency on our streets and something we are trying to do for our community partners out of respect for hard work on the ground. we know they are working every day on the ground in the community and with the service providers. we will leave time for discussion. that is the last slide.
4:56 am
we can turn back to you, chair williams. >> thank you so much. i am going to go to public comment. do we have any public comment? >> member of the public who wish to comment call 415-655-0001. if you haven't done so dial star 3 to speak. system prompt will indicate you have raised your hand. wait until you are up muted to comment. you have three minutes. checking the list now for hands raised. i do not see public comment. >> i am going to the committee discussion. i want to acknowledge the director thomas in rapid rehousing and support for rapid rehousing if we can extend that out. any members that have questions
4:57 am
or comments. member friedenbach. you are muted. >> thank you for the presentation. a lot of thought and energy has gone into making this happen. i want to share some observations. with the rapid rehousing if folks are within a very short period of time expected to take on market rate represent on their own and are not ready for an earn and learn situation and need to have very basic job readiness, it doesn't seem like
4:58 am
that is the appropriate housing. they should maybe be in something that is more permanent. i think this goes back to some of the problems that we have been seeing with coordinated entry where it seems to be more focused on eligibility than appropriate level of housing placement. that is an observation. i think it is really -- i appreciate the flexibility. if people aren't ready for a particular thing to do something else. rapid rehousing is a very ricky intervention. it is short term. we don't know. our rents are high. it is a lot to take on bay area rent. you have to have a income higher than public assistance to do that successfully. the other piece around opening up to other people.
4:59 am
i assume the premise is you know maybe we have more money to serve more people with that. i think the concern there is that we were pretty careful about budgeting to make sure there would be a serious investment in each individual. making sure we were successful with them. that is my feedback. i would be nervous about that. i would be nervous about, obviously, we love serving more people. we want to make sure the individuals are getting quality support that allows them to take over that rent. going back to that idea that the short term subsidies. we were nervous about investing in those for that reason. you know, i think we have seen people not successful at that. the other -- just the last
5:00 am
piece. in our final spreadsheet we did have recommendations for work force specifically. i am confused about that and prevention. one of the things to think about is prevention. this goes to sort of balancing. we want to right size the system. we want to prevent people from becoming homeless. if we do that really well, then the amount of shelter we have is appropriate. hopefully we build towards the amount of housing that we have that is appropriate. i think the idea is that the work force and the prevention category is to prevent people who would be losing their housing to be able to kind of ensure they can increase their job skills and work and do stuff as represents are rising and
5:01 am
that kind of thing. i believe the wording in the measure recently homeless is okay. i am not sure if you have been thinking about that in terms of prevention dollars for that and how you sort of have that prevention item. those are my three things. thank you so much for the presentation. >> thank you. member reggio then member andrews. >> i echo appreciation for the presentation. it is a lot to digest in a short time. i apologize for what i missed. i am thinking back to the part on possibly reallocating moving fund bees that otherwise would be connected to the rapid rehousing participants. noel, maybe this is a question for you.
5:02 am
can you give us a sense of the scope of numbers of people involved. how many folks currently have a sense of people in rapid rehousing or taking advantage or in a place right now where they can take advantage of the earn and learn or other employment opportunities and expectation in a short period of time they would be age to carry that. is this a small number of folks or sizable that leaves some funds? >> thanks for the question. the ad county rapid rehousing are to -- adult rapid rehousing are 165 in a year. only ecs has started service delivery. there is no great data on how
5:03 am
many in that population will be ready for earn and learn. what we heard is that because these rapid rehousing clients are coming out of the step system and the people we prioritized for sip were covid vulnerable her were older and had chronic health conditions. when you think about readiness for employment of that population that is the portion we are grappling with. they were fighting small numbers and felt the majority needed that first. the other point i want to make and we are short on time. the comments about serving a broader population. the three employment specialists will be dedicated to serving 165 rapid rehousing clients specifically. we want to make sure they get attached to appropriate intervention, they have an
5:04 am
ongoing individual supporting them and checking in with them and helping to navigate the language to broader services. we are setting aside slots for service we don't want to unnecessarily limit the array of service options they can access. there is another array of services out there that may be a better fit for rapid rehousing clients. if they access the other services we may be underutilized in the dedicated slots. we are just trying to make sure we serve as many as possible while holds priority on the rand rehousing clients.
5:05 am
>> one other element to what noel said. five t is another example. reentry job center and training program within our portfolio. that same feedback. if earn and learn isn't being taken advantage of by everyone or not everyone is going there. to provide immediately other options where there is not a long runup prepared to pay market rate rent for participants. hospitality house and goodwill have a very close connection to job center programs. they have a close connection to employers. the idea is toward working
5:06 am
toward placement a job as fast as possible. maybe not earn and learn but another option to earn while you are working. you want the resource. being cognizant of the need to do that work with intentionality is kind of the charge with what is available. it is not only job readiness. we fund the target or placement. they have a keen eye toward the employer community and we work together to open up doors to break down biases that may exist. it is about making sure to get to that placement through job readiness. >> thank you. andrews and leadbetter. >> thank you. noel and josh, thank you for the
5:07 am
presentation. it was a lot of information. i am a work force provider. i am closer to the work and understand what you are trying to do. couple things to comment on. that speak to how the dollars are allocated. i have said this i am a minor bird. do not race to the bottom for people's health and well-being so that they are sick enough or poor enough then finally we show up with services. being nimble and thinking of ways to prevent someone from being homeless or prevent someone from losing their job, i think it is important. it is a hallmark of san francisco that our services are client-centered. in harm reduction. we meet clients where they are. i had a separate conversation
5:08 am
with josh and his team about why doll state dollar -- state dollars are restrictive. clients disabled couldn't meet minimum requirements to engage in those services. we are flexible. the other piece around this that supports why i would can't to leave these dollars as flexible as possible and we should be prioritizing. if those are dollars left on the table use in other areas. example. there are a lot of work force development services out there. for many people it isn't what we may identify as primary concern. a lot of clients are h.i.v.
5:09 am
positive wouldn't go to traditional work force development programs. i had this 20 years ago. we created specialized access point. that person living with their condition may lead to the way in an environment to engage in work force development training and services and get employed. when we talk about client be centered, be client centered and hear what people need and what is the priority and what is driving them. then develop and design tailored services to meet that. we have done a great job of creating these multiple access points to come in. any door is the right door. a few words about that. thank you very much for your presentations. >> thank you. member leadbetter than vice
5:10 am
chair d'antonio. >> thank you so much. i really want to emphasize i think this was the beginning of a flexible conversation. i want to encourage the community members with the work force to really stay flexible here as well as the department. the comments like work force came part of the our city our home conversation because the community really cried out for it. they cried out for it in the prevention. they cried out for it in housing. it wasn't specifically allocated in the legislation or discussed. we are responding to a community need here. it is really heartening to see
5:11 am
all of those systems, all of the work you guys are doing. i want to thank be the deputy director in particular. i think there might have been a moment where our recommendations didn't make it in the budget. there was another moment for director where it was in your budget. we are all working together to layer it, figure it out. to that point i don't like to call for separate meetings to track dollars to understand where they are at. i am getting a lot of questions how they are spent. i don't feel like i can answer them clearly at this point. if we could take that offline with the liaisons to track spending so we can be accountable and clear about this. particularly on the prevention side we tried to make the language of the expenditures
5:12 am
flexible to give you the flexibility to allocate or to really coordinate the systems level work. that is presenting some challenges as we chase the funding. if we could send it back that would be great. to the rapid rehousing conversation. just a little bit of history here. i think the committee took a major leap of faith in allocating much rapid rehousing slots as we were asked to allocate. the committee felt that it wasn't appropriate match for the clients. vulnerability level, we knew the income level. the linkage of a work force component to rapid rehousing was really a community backing into rapid rehousing. if we are going to do rapid rehousing at least we need
5:13 am
something to help with income support. i think we all know this is not just job readiness or employment going to help with income support. we lost the legal services component in our recommendations. i think probably in all of the systems were not as richly connected to our benefit connections as we were before. the mainstream connections it was understandable to the pandemic experience. long story short. i would welcome the department coming back to reassessing this appropriately am located housing if we need to reallocate. i know that means year-over-year spending and that is something that has to do for fiscal reasons. i am concerned that we are
5:14 am
coming up with making rehousing work when maybe it is not going to work for a certain sub set. if there is an opening for that conversation, i would welcome that as well. thank you so much. i think work force is a major part of this committee moving forward. i am excited to see the dedication and mission built and interest in making it -- flexibility to make it happen. strategic planning and prevention. you have my commitment to keep working with the department and community to get that. >> thank you so much. we will go to vice chair d'antonio and then frieden back. >> thank you for the presentation. i have a couple comments.
5:15 am
>> i would like to see what is working. it is one thing to ask providers and then ask people directly going through the system. i think there might be information to better design the program. i went through work force development a long time ago. i am sure things changed over five or 10 years ago. some things that stood out there is a lack of autonomy. a lack of things to motivate them what they want to do. some disconnect there. between what actually motivates them to do that work. those are my comments.
5:16 am
>> real quick. one other piece about prevention. i wanted to bring up is that for a lot of folks who become homeless. before they become homeless the place they are living in they are not officially on the lease. it is about half or reinvolving door 800 people we surveyed, i want to put that out there, also, because i think if we are -- we need to target that population for prevention services and making sure. the idea is once they are able to increase income and get better then they can have a much more stable housing situation.
5:17 am
i wanted to make that point. >> i want to track the directors and civic makers for a great presentation. we are interested in work force and want to continue the conversation. i will hand it over to the director. >> thank you for your service. colleagues and members and feedback. we have been taking notes. congratulations on reappointment as chair and vice chair. the only thing to chair the importance of options. we have talked today about adult rapid rehousing because of that. that is a sense of urgency providing the opportunity to earn as soon as possible. the direction around longter prevention and additional resources will suit us well with
5:18 am
our community partners. i want to thank you for that. again, by no means are these limited set of resources available to persons experiencing homelessness. there are specialized job centers for individuals with disabilities, veterans and others. i want to put in a quick plug for a training event we are doing together with many of these same service providers at city hall on tuesday, december 14th from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. i will send these around for those with social media presence bees. this is a training event for individuals looking for training for free resume assistance, city college classes to learn how to apply for city employment and for youth and adults to sign up for free summer internal ships. those long-term options to plant
5:19 am
seeds to have more kind of more options available. i want to make sure we are promoting that we will share that information and appreciate the partnership and support. i will turn it to deputy director simons for final thoughts. thank you for all of your work. >> thanks. i will be very brief here. i will thank the committee members for the thoughtful discussion today. we have some follow-up. julie we will reach up offline about the follow up meeting. we will close by saying again how excited i am we are doing this work and moving beyond strategies to mitigate people's
5:20 am
poverty to get to the root causes to help put people on the trajectory to greater self-sufficient fish seen. we look forward to continuing the work and partnership with all of you. >> thank you to everyone. we are moving forward. thank you to our guest presenters. we have great news. we have from the mayor's office our new appoint meant to the mayor's open seat. i will read their bio. exciting to have someone joins us. michelle cunning ham. san francisco resident be on transadvisory committee work for violence prevention. the paja coalition. her position involves supporting housing for transmembers experiencing homelessness. we want to welcome michelle to our next meeting.
5:21 am
we are excited to that. item 6. discussion of the liaison work plans. each with take two to three minutes to provide an overview of the role and work plan. do you have any comments before we move to our liaison? >> i did receive material people. i didn't want to take a lot of liberties to make them powerpoints. put them on the powerpoint. the slides may be busy but helpful to remember what you wrote down. it will be good documentation.
5:22 am
>> thank you. i think that the document that we receive correctly identifies is goals and position. you can read it and you are familiar with it because you wrote it. we passed it last year. the work plan i broke up by months. i will quickly go through that. december meet with housing accelerator to possible challenge recommendation. this is a follow-up meeting they presented to us last month. it would be a meeting myself and a couple colleagues would have to see if there is something that we might bring back to the committee as far as permanent housing recommendation. i also see a check in with the mayor's office on progress
5:23 am
toward implementation of 21-22 housing recommendations and to hear preliminary concerns for fy22-23. january. subject to executive committee approval. i think we would want a presentation from hsh where they are in terms of implementation of our recommendations that we ended up including in the board's budget and mayor's budget. i think we had indicated earlier or had expected earlier that would be a quarterly report and we would be due for one then to inform where we go with this year's february. meet with supportive housing providers network to hear concerns and budget recommendations. also, in february project budget
5:24 am
recommendations and what funding might be available to the controller's office. i have done back of the envelope stuff. jessie and then have something formal so we know how much permanent housing recommendation or funding that we allocated to carry forward. let me briefly say very important maybe the most important of these collaborate with julia. with community impact accountability to meet with housed and unhoused community members to hear their priorities and recommendations. consult with mayor's office. mohcd and get back to housing accelerator fund. april next slide. we would be looking to tieing
5:25 am
down more specifically the recommendations. that is where i see the work. much as last year. community outreach. outreach to providers, outreach to departments involved and talking with housing accelerator folks. end of presentation. >> thank you. i will open it up to committee members for questions. member andrews and choice chair d'antonio. >> that was just a holedover. i will take it down. >> member frieden back. >> this was great. thanks so much for your work on this, ken. i am nervous about timing.
5:26 am
if we wanted to try to make it to the mayor's budget submitted from the department in february. it seems like we would want to try to. i don't know if this is too ambitious. we would try to have recommendations to the departments before they submitterred the budget to the mayor. if it doesn't happen that way, we might end up with competing rather than kind of collective recommendations. that might happen anyway. ideally we are on the same page going to the mayor's office. that is my only comment. it is ambitious. >> i think part of it is we are looking at and i am not seeing that slide. looking at january for a more thorough conversation with hsh
5:27 am
and ocd. i am concerned where we are in family housing. maybe emphasizing that and making sure that happens in january would still give us time to align more with their february deadline. if i don't have that in january, move that up to january. thank you. >> i would say the march meeting with the community. i have that in mine as well. it was january or february as well. >> let's move that up as well. i can work with you to find a time. >> i do not see any other hands from the committee. if folks want to work with member reggio on the work plan reach out. we will move to the next
5:28 am
liaison. shelter. member friedenbach. >> this looks different. ken put me to shame here because his is so much more detailed. basic idea. the thing with the shelter and hygiene. i was doing an analysis for unspent moneys. 97% of the shelter funding is up and running or is about to be. like the r.v. park in the bayview. what that means on this category there is going to be -- not as much play in terms of doing different things with the money. we maxed out. we have the staff sleeping
5:29 am
villages which are scheduled to end in a staggered situation except for the one on golf which is going to turn into like a tiny home, more permanent. point is we will have a little play there. the city is also recommending moving the folks from the safe sleeping villages into a new site on post. they had the community meeting for last night. i wanted to preface that with this. i am puttings the goals down there is not a lot of money to work with on them. basically, you know, developing equity centers proposals for release of funds for shelter aphygiene. assess for adjustments based on outcomes. since most of the money is
5:30 am
spent. we could look at is there interventions that we are doing in the shelter section unsuccessful we want to shift gears on? maybe we could get more bang for the money doing something different. that kind of thing. develop and support programs for people experiencing homelessness. geographic is one of the things we have been talking about geographic diversity. alternative structure is all that stuff. we funded the r.v.s. the ones from the state. that program we funded permanently. we have 10 villages, tiny homes, safe parking space. all those alternative things. there might be other things. congregate shelter and non congregate and showers. in terms of timeline.
5:31 am
december-january focusing on input from seekers and users. city departments and other stakeholders. february analyzing investments looking at the big picture of shelters is there. places that were falling short if we have ability to do something different we can. develop proposals for new investments. the one area of the shelter that hasn't hit the streets is hotel rooms. for pregnant people and families, that is an easy thing because most of the programs do hotels, it expands the number of hotels. hopefully that hits the streets soon. then we will get the 00%. i will stop there.
5:32 am
>> any questions -- one hundred percent. >> next liaison. leadbetter. >> i have the -- do you want to go to the data officer ones? >> yes. i apologize. i focused on the data officer getting my head around be that. i did not get back to prevention which i can work on. >> in general, what i am sort of questioning and i hope we can align on. jessie can help us here. i am confused about the cadence of our work. we have the desire to have annual input for each budget cycle, two year budget cycle, three year needs assessment. i don't know when that starts or
5:33 am
what is considered the needs assessment. all of this is a caveat to say that hopefully we are sort that out. i know hsh is working on the planning. we have some big picture planning timelines to put in place for the purposes of data officer, i am aiming for three year time and working backwards. i am aware we have the action plan be we put together two years. i think we need to sort that out so we are all speaking a similar language and knowing when we are doing stuff. it is clear we are working on a budget cycle for each annual budget. i don't be think we need a full assessment process each year. understanding how much we do each year and biannually and
5:34 am
nor every three years is part of my task in working with the departments and controller's office. with that said, december i have started attending the data work group with the departments. thank you for that. jessie is leading the initial preliminary assessment. the data working group department staff are going to provide responses to the staff. the staff will prepare the preliminary assessment. we saw bits and pieces of that including populations, inventory in the system, different interventions and the services. this is on the basis of the conversations for focus group to allow us to further assess needs and gaps and align with the community input there.
5:35 am
january the data working group reviews and provides feedback on preliminary assessment. staff incorporates that feedback. we hopefully get an introduction to the consultant team working on the focus group. that contract is just finally getting sorted out. once sorted out we can meet them and have successful conversation. i am excited to move that group. in february the committee can review and provide feedback on the same preliminary assessments. i think questions ahead for us in addition to the big picture alignment questions. how does the committee want to be part of deep helping this focus work group and have influence on that. one possibility is to figure out
5:36 am
the questions and agendas for the focus groups so we have the type of information the community is concerned with. for example, what populations or needs does the community want or need to know more about. some of these things have included history of incarceration, black men, people accessing the prevention system and other themes would be what would work to end your homelessness? we ask people experiencing homelessness. what barriers kept you out of housing? what would have prevented you from becoming homeless? working with committee members to translate thinking to the focus groups to get the right questions that committee members are concerned with. i think that is it for now.
5:37 am
we have some february-june. i think i share the same questions with member reggio and frieden back for the first initial needs assessment process moving forward. i think to get there we can opinion this down. the sooner we do that we can start working together to figure out rules and responsibilities within the collective effort to get to the plan. i think i had other ideas related to working in partnership with vice chair
5:38 am
d'antonio. >> maybe the vice chair wants to present. >> i can wait until the separate section. >> either way works. >> i have questions on the data officer portion. >> what is intercept surveys? >> finding people. doing it out on the streets? >> that is more of an outreach technique. one-on-one conversation.
5:39 am
rather than the focus group and going to places where people are. going to them. >> i like this a lot. one request i would have is that when we are designing the questions and the population, subpopulations we want more information on from the last slide. maybe we could send be out a google survey and see what the committee would want in those areas. maybe i don't know if there is a community process as well with that. google survey. that will have engagement on our website.
5:40 am
>> i just will apologize to you all. i wasn't able to get to all of this before thanksgiving. i am going to follow up with jessie. we are going to meet to fill that in. a few things to say as i approach this. i agree with all members. i think we need to particularly how member leadbetter framed it. we need to nail down the specifics on how we are going to approach prioritization and al location related to the budget. there are nonnegotiable dates to land on. work backwards from there. as i was thinking about the work and how i was going to approach
5:41 am
the work, there were some things that stuck out in my mind. there is a latitude for all of us to gain community input and input from service providers. i also feel that it is worth at least having a discussion on the things on how we approach with some level of consistency across each one of those areas. my worry is that the it is so broad and so defined specifically by category, some folks who are more skilled or have more time may be able to get a significant amount of community i be put or input from a broad amount of stakeholders. it is worth thinking about a-frame. that is what this work plan is in furtherance of. it will definitely get there. in the presentations we just had thinking about making sure there
5:42 am
is parity in ways in which we solicit input. the other thing i wanted to say and i have been pushing this. i added to the list of things we should do is having a conversation with mental health sf. they are doing a lot of overlap work from a systems perspective that impacts the work we do. i want the committee to think there strategically how we could on a more consistent basis engage them and have us report out to them as well. a few things i am thinking about also. mental health association san francisco has good information. it would be great to reach out in my communications not only be to the departments but subdivisions of racial equity to hear their priorities.
5:43 am
work to incorporate a lot of what their intentions and priorities are in the work we do. we say that word a lot. we say that phrase a lot. i think it is worth us challenging ourselves to figure out how that is incorporated in the investments we make and services we provide. those are a few of my broad priorities i am thinking about. last thing i will be reach out to provider network. human services network and is behavioral health service provider's network to engage them in soliciting their thoughts and ideas as we move forward. i will be working with that subsequent to this meeting with jessie. >> we will move back to the community impactly say son.
5:44 am
vice chair. >> great. thank you. i am sure it is a lot of work but we will go over with you guys. [indiscernable] show transparency, easy to access in the community. ensure account ability. what is funded. those are kind of overarching goals i see. i separated it out by projects, i guess, versus months. budget work plan. december. gathering and planning information. whatever style of listening sessions we want to do. i kind of feel like because of time and since we had help last
5:45 am
year a few like really large sessions. similar to the ones hosted by cynthia last year with a broad participation might be ideal time wise and open to smaller sessions. folks are open, too. then january would be actually hosting those sessions, town halls or whatever we decide to do. that is because by february we would like to have all of that information. then transparency and account ability. march. another town hall or whatever listening session to say what we propose in our budget. that is addressing the transparency and accountability. we had one of those last year
5:46 am
and i think people really appreciated it. then by april would like to have -- might be before april. that is a good goal. focusing on budget to focus on having the website up and having a dashboard up where it is easy for people to get the information as far as like what is funded, what is allocated and what for example how many are housed, how many beds are created. that is it. open to feedback. >> i do not see any hands. member friedenbach. >> thanks. this looks great.
5:47 am
thanks for all your work on this. it's also pairs nicely with what present was saying in terms -- brent was saying in terms of making sure as this gets built out making sure the parity and getting input and that stuff is right. one thing i wanted to comment on the dashboard is that i have been fining the dph bed dashboard super-helpful. i have been looking at that pretty regularly and using it for a lot of different things. that could be a good model for us to build off of. for behavioral health in particular that is about beds. there the other stuff to add to it. we could use that format for
5:48 am
other sections potentially. you know, link to the department website if the departments are willing to do the stuff as well. it is on their website. you can google bed tracking. bed tracking dashboard or something. they did talk about it at a presentation. >> thank you. i have a section on lived experience. did you move that to the other section? >> sorry. saying that made my heart stop for a second.
5:49 am
i think i got a version from julie and different version from you. this looks like the one. >> i am sure there is a lot of overlap. it was more like detailed as far as months and stuff. it is seeing if the months were aligned. >> we can refine this. it is not set in stone. it is just in power point be. >> no worries. thank you. >> thank you for all your hard work. there is work to be done. we will circle back to this and to the point of our ambitious timeline. we definitely want to think about that in terms of working with the departments to get ahead of that. we will work with staff to figure out how we can have a timeline to implement the process. we will move to public comment. >> members of the public to
5:50 am
comment on this item call 415-655-0001 code 24883506625. pound and pound. if you haven't done so dial star 3 to speak. please wait until you are unmuted to comment. you have three minutes. checking the list now. >> also, julie wasn't able to go over lived experience. do we want be to do that after public comment? >> we can come back to it if you want. >> is there a caller? hello caller. >> good morning, committee members. i am reagan. i work at barrier legal aid. benefits and legal services were mentioned earlier in the meeting. i want to encourage the committee to continue to think
5:51 am
about how civil legal services can fit into your ongoing planning and recommendations. we are helping unhoused people apply for social security disability benefits. i want to highlight three gap this is services we are seeing in the city right now. lack of funding for mobile legal services for unsheltered people to apply for social security. we were able to do this in the past. we can't do it now. we are turning away referrals from hot team and outreach workers. no funding now to help people exiting jail apply for benefits prereleased. there is a program in alameda county that shows increase in housing stability. not enough capacity to help people maintain benefits. this is a problem over the past
5:52 am
year with social security offices remaining closed to the public due to pandemic. it may beings it hard for people to come apply with ongoing requirements needed to keep benefits. we have seen people losing income as a result. we were just at the critical gaps. there are many ways that civil legal services can fit in. we hope you consider those. barrier legal aid is one group of legal service providers happy to meet with any committee members to provide more information. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> there are no additional callers. >> i just realized it is 11:30 a.m. next meeting prevention, behavioral health and lived experience. that will combine into one.
5:53 am
>> thank you. with that we will move to item 7. future agenda items. any future agenda item on the committee as well as updates? >> member reggio. >> what i said earlier. we had a commitment to quarterly report on progress toward permanent housing development. it is such a huge part of the allocations. i would like to ask that we get an update from hsh and ocd. >> thank you. >> that is what we are trying to do that by february. >> thank you, chair williams. i am thinking how we do our work within our respective organizations. then within the city and county
5:54 am
of san francisco. i am wondering and i am not clear who the appropriate person be would be. i am wondering if we could get someone from the state to hear what some of their efforts are at the state-wide level so we have an understanding how there is a through line and coordinated effort what the state is prioritizing and investing in to help us more broadly think about what investments are going to be made in san francisco. i think about that. again, i mentioned possibly a presentation or coordinated meeting with mental health sf to hear what is going on with them. then i just, i want to say a word. it was surprising and unfortunate that the legal advocacy work didn't make it
5:55 am
into the final budget. i would like to prioritize that. the fact of the matter is that there are key services that are often not as available to the population we serve as to the general population. legal representation matters. when you have an advocate, particularly when you are challenged around so many things, it goes a long way. i hope we can pick that up with some serious consideration and intention and possibly have the coalition of service providers present be to us again as we think about our investments going forward. thank you. >> vice chair d'antonio. >> just two things. i would love to have a presentation from the housing authority similar to what brett said knowing where the state
5:56 am
dollars are. housing authority to get more federal funds. we have vouchers coming in. it is hard to like create a system model without that piece of the system. my other item is requested by a community group and member is around having a presentation from the doctor from u.c.s.f. around sip hotels and health outcomes for folks that were living in the sip hotels. i just wanted to bring that up. i can get more information on that and have jessie send it out. >> we will go to public comment. >> members of the public who wish to comment on this item call 415-655-0001. access code 24883506625.
5:57 am
pound and pound. if you haven't done so dial star 3. please wait until the system indicates you are unmuted to begin your comments. you have three minutes. i do not see any hands. no public comment. >> thank you. i will entertain a motion to adjourn. >> motion to adjourn. >> moved by vice chair d'antonio. >> second by member andrews. we will go to roll call vote. >> andrews. >> yes. >> d'antonio. >> yes. >> friedenbach. >> yes. >> leadbetter. >> she stepped out. miller. absent. reggio. >> yes. >> chair williams. >> yes. >> motion passes. we are now at adjourned at 11:3.
