The Boulder County 10-year Plan Goals, Objectives and Strategies

GOAL 4: Develop and/or Improve Systems to Support Efficient and Effective Plan Implementation

In recent years, Boulder County has implemented a number of efforts that will greatly aid in this plan’s implementation.  The Human Services Strategic Plan and the LHOT 10-year Plan to End Homelessness, for example, aided greatly in the development of this plan’s contents and were instrumental in getting the right partners to the table. Recent efforts to implement components of those plans has led to the creation of critical systems and infrastructure that will be extremely valuable in supporting this plan’s goals and objectives without requiring significant financial investments.

This goal is focused on the furthering the development of systems that are critical for the performance of the larger plan.  The critical areas include:

  • Further refinement of an outreach model that is based on an evidence based theory of practice that can be adopted by both providers.
  • Further establish and disseminate a standard case management model that will help support the provision of services to all homeless plan participants.
  • Develop data sharing agreements and processes that will assist organizations in coordinating their service delivery and give case managers the information they need to better support participants.
  • Implement a standard management information system that can be used to support case planning, service monitoring, the assessment of accomplishments and the promotion of information sharing across providers.
