It’s been a pretty exciting year for the Home For Good Standards of Excellence so far, with a very successful symposium this past March, the formation of a strong steering committee to guide the implementation of the Standards, and now the launching of what promises to be an exciting series of free seminars to help build capacity throughout the community.
Today we are proud to present to you our Spring update to the Standards of Excellence. It represents the culmination of months work by our partners at CSH, Shelter Partnership, and many service providers who participate in the Standards workgroup meetings. It is based on recommendations and feedback we’ve received from the community since the Standards’ inception. And it will serve as a guide for understanding what the Standards are and why they’re so important.
Of course, the Standards are ever evolving, and we will continue to review and refine them as we move forward. We plan on sharing updates every quarter, so please look out for future releases.
What’s up next for the Standards? Aside from the upcoming seminars, we are currently working on creating the tools by which the Standards can be applied. Through our Steering Committee, we are exploring the ways in which the Standards can best move the community forward. And once we complete our initial set of seminar offerings, we will be providing opportunities for even more intensive technical assistance through our CQI trainings. So definitely much more exciting things to come!
