title

Adopt a resolution authorizing an amendment to the agreement with Front Street, Inc. for Residential Services, extending the term through June 30, 2022, and increasing the amount by $547,521 to an amount not to exceed $1,098,941.

BACKGROUND:

Front Street, Inc. (Front Street) provides unique services that are both difficult to find and necessary for clients who might otherwise require hospital placement. This contractor is the only Bay Area provider known to Behavioral Health and Recovery Services (BHRS) that provides 24-hour residential services for older adults with serious and persistent mental illness. The contractor has provided these services since 2008.

 

On July 25, 2017, the Board approved an agreement with Front Street for residential services for mentally ill clients for the term of July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2020, in an amount not to exceed $551,420.

 

DISCUSSION:

Under this agreement, Front Street will provide four dedicated beds and 24-hour residential care services for older adults. This component of the housing continuum allows a cost-efficient alternative to using more costly emergency services (e.g., Psychiatric Emergency Services). 

 

It is now necessary to amend this agreement to add one more dedicated bed, increasing the maximum amount by $547,521 to an amount not to exceed $1,098,941 and extending the term though June 30, 2022.

The resolution contains the County’s standard provision allowing amendment of the County’s fiscal obligations by a maximum of $25,000 (in aggregate).

The amendment and resolution have been reviewed and approved by County Counsel as to form.

 

It is anticipated that 75% of client will be obtaining stable housing (permanent or transitional) upon discharge.

FISCAL IMPACT:

Of that amount, $46,539 is included in the FY 2019-20 Adopted Budget. 100% of this increase is funded by 1991 Realignments funds. There is no Net County Cost.
