How is your community conducting coordinated assessments? Please identify any other system used by your community including those used by domestic violence providers.

The Western Virginia Continuum’s Centralized Intake program continues to grow. In March of 2015, the hotline number was converted to a Google Voice format which provided the line with an unlimited voicemail storage capacity and a computerized log of all incoming phone numbers. This year, our call volume increased from 7,000 to over 9,500 calls.

 

The Western Virginia Continuum of Care has added a second person/office to help field Centralized Intake calls throughout the region. The second office is located in the northern part of the CoC. Due to this expansion there are now two walk-in locations for screenings. Referrals are tracked through the HMIS system.

Our Centralized Intake staff completes an eligibility screening assessment with clients, which has been expanded to include HIV services when appropriate. Calls are tracked by phone number in the Callpoint System. Referrals for rapid rehousing are sent through the HMIS system for non-DV VHSP Grantees.

 

Clients experiencing an episode of active domestic violence are discreetly and immediately referred to an appropriate domestic violence service provider for assessment, counseling, safety planning, and potential shelter if needed.
