BACKGROUND:

After obtaining Board approval on June 27, 2017, by Resolution No. 075298, the County entered into an agreement with LifeMoves for the term of July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018, for a total obligation amount not to exceed $712,000 to provide street-based outreach and community health services to assist San Mateo County residents who are unsheltered and experiencing homelessness with becoming housed and improve their access to health care.

 

After obtaining Board approval on June 5, 2018, by Resolution No. 075928, the County amended its agreement with LifeMoves to extend the term by two years for a new term of July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2020 and increase funding by $1,424,000 for a new total obligation amount not to exceed $2,136,000 to continue providing outreach and community health services for the extended term.

 

After obtaining Board approval on June 2, 2020, by Resolution No. 077468, the County further amended its agreement with LifeMoves to extend the term by an additional two years for a new term of July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2022 and increase funding by $1,098,524 for a new total obligation amount not to exceed $3,228,584 to continue providing outreach and community health services for the extended term.

 

After obtaining Board approval on July 20, 2021, by Resolution No. 078334, the County further amended its agreement with LifeMoves to increase the funding by $407,723 for a new total obligation amount not to exceed $3,636,307 to cover the cost to expand homeless outreach services to include COVID-19 vaccine education and support services with the term remaining July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2022.

 

DISCUSSION:

The parties wish to now further amend the agreement to increase funding by $121,359 for a new total obligation amount not to exceed $3,757,666, with the term remaining July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2022, to increase the capacity to provide street-based outreach and case management services to San Mateo County’s unsheltered homeless population with a continued focus on those that are chronically homeless. This funding will add an additional three (3) full-time outreach case managers to the Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) and will increase LifeMoves’ capacity to provide street-based outreach, engagement, and case management services to San Mateo County’s unsheltered homeless population.

 

LifeMoves will continue to identify and engage highly vulnerable homeless individuals who face barriers in obtaining and maintaining housing. In addition, LifeMoves will be able to provide more housing-focused case management services to develop individualized housing plans with people experiencing homelessness. The case management services include 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 under this amendment for FY 2021-22 that 45 unduplicated clients will receive outreach and engagement services and 12 clients receiving case management services will move into Emergency Shelter, Transitional Housing, or other temporary destinations (e.g. temporarily living with family or friends).
