Overview

Self-reported by organization

GAEH's PROJECT PEN CONNECT is built upon a database of over 1,100 homeless services providers that have been identified, surveyed and mapped across Georgia. These providers are re-surveyed annually by GAEH volunteers to ensure that this database remains current. Georgia’s homeless services coordination is critical to organizational and provider ability to focus on homeless prevention while ensuring the needed service provision coordination. This allows the homeless Continuum of Care Network to best meet the needs of persons living in poverty and/or experiencing homelessness. Two key organizational programs: the Provider Enhancement Network (PEN)  and the GAEH Quality Enhancement Standards Support and Training Program (QESST), are critical components of Georgia’s Continuum for homeless children, unaccompained youth, families and individuals. These programs are complimented by the GAEH Technical Assistance and Provider Training (TAPT).
Project PEN CONNECT is designed to comprehensively coordinate and link services to persons most at risk and in need across the state of Georgia through a series of programs and networks. These programmatic resources include intake, assessment, technical assistance, quality standards, and information with referral and coordination of services for homeless persons.

Program 2

Quality Enhancement Standards Support and Training

The Quality Enhancement Standards And Support Training Team, (QESST), of the Georgia Coalition to End Homelessness, has developed an assessment process for organizations that provide services to the homeless population that choose to participate. This assessment is intended to be comprehensive and to include the operations of an entire organization. The QESST process of self assessment, client information, and peer evaluation enables Georgia Coalition to End Homelessness, through the local service provision organizations, to assure homeless people and the community that quality services are being provided. Quality services are intended to enable homeless individuals and families to have the best possible chance of movement toward self-sufficiency and toward the goal of ending homelessness.
