What Our Community Should Demand to Know about the Homeless Authority (CSAH) [being in disarray] & Homelessness in Savannah


Our Community Should Demand to Know:

  • What we’re doing to house our chronic homeless
  • Why Housing First isn’t a model any of our existing CoC (CSAH) members are supporting
  • What type of Housing First project we would support as a community
  • Why the Faith Community hasn’t been effectively engaged in ending homelessness in Savannah
  • What is the role of the United Way, Business (Chamber) and Tourism business sectors & Faith Community in ending homelessness in our community
  • Why Women’s & Children (Family & Youth) homelessness aren’t a focal point of our efforts
  • What are we specifically doing to house our Veterans
  • What is the real deal on the PIT (point in time count) & our homelessness count data – how do we justify our counts & funding levels
  • Why are we only seeking (thru the annual CoC Competition) HUD recurring dollars for our community to end chronic & other forms of homelessness
  • How the City’s $200K line item for the CSAH in the 2013 Budget will be spent
  • What will we request in this years NOFA (CoC Competition) for funding from HUD for 2013
  • Are we seeking any of the optional funding for chronic homelessness (meeting the unmet need?) & if not why not
  • How can we be involved in the new Ten Year Plan process
  • What Taskforces & sequence of reform processes are suggested by the Assessment Report & how can we as a community make sure everyone is at the table in all decisions regarding these recommendations

These questions are based on our activities in the Assessment Report process & as reported in the Savannah Morning News article on the “Report: Chatham Savannah homeless authority in disarray“!
