PHASES OF OUTREACH
FOB Hope is a platform to help those veterans who are homeless or struggling get out of the weather, get back on their feet, and focus on both personal and professional growth to become productive, thriving members of society.
Triage and initial evaluation phase: This phase includes basic outreach and meeting homeless veterans where they are by providing basic items, information, and contact information for future support and assistance in changing their situation.
The follow up to this phase is to continue engaging the veteran in order to ensure they can survive life on the street and to build trust so they will welcome the opportunity for change.
Intermediate phase: This phase is where the veteran relocates to either emergency or transitional housing and begins working on the barriers that keep them from being permanently housed. The barriers may include drug and alcohol issues, mental health issues, and employment.
The follow up to this phase is to continue checking in with the veteran to ensure they are progressing in the program they chose to help with recovery and/or employment.
Advanced phase: This phase is where FOB Hope assists the veteran with getting into permanent housing by referring them to Coordinated Entry for All and the Homeless Information Management System.
The follow up to this phase is to ensure the veteran has the financial support to move into housing, the income to sustain housing, and the furniture and items needed to live comfortably.
