BACKGROUND:

The Homeless Outreach Team (“HOT”) provides street-based outreach, engagement, and case management to San Mateo County’s unsheltered homeless population with a focus on those that are chronically homeless. HOT services also include rapid response outreach to inquiries from local municipalities, service providers, and community members.

 

After obtaining approval by your Board, by Resolution No. 075298, on June 27, 2017, the County entered into an agreement with LifeMoves to provide HOT services for the term of July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018 and a total obligation amount of $712,000. On June 5, 2018, after obtaining approval by your Board, by Resolution No. 075928, the County amended its agreement with LifeMoves to extend the term by two years through June 30, 2020 and increased the funding by $1,424,000 for a new total obligation amount of $2,136,000.

 

DISCUSSION:

The Human Services Agency (“HSA”) requests this amendment to extend the agreement term by two years and add funding in the amount of $1,092,584 to allow LifeMoves to continue to provide HOT services through June 30, 2022. LifeMoves will continue to identify and engage highly vulnerable homeless individuals who face barriers in obtaining and maintaining housing. In addition, LifeMoves will continue providing housing-focused case management to develop individualized housing plans. This includes helping clients apply for, or access, housing vouchers, shared housing, affordable housing, housing with family or friends, senior housing, or other housing resources as well as emergency or transitional shelter.

 

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

 

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

 

It is anticipated that 200 unduplicated clients will receive housing focused case management and 90% of Rapid Response requests will be responded to within 24 hours each fiscal year.
