The Homeless-Serving System of Care
Picture a network of agencies serving people who are experiencing homelessness in the city. This network is called the Homeless-Serving System of Care, or HSSC.
As leader of this network, we work to ensure that individuals and families have timely access to the resources that suit their needs by mapping, funding, and coordinating agencies, as well as creating unified measures of success.
Evaluation and Learning
The evaluation and learning team is made up of system planners: individuals with diverse skills and backgrounds united in their commitment to build an effective system of care for Calgarians experiencing homelessness.
System planners work with agencies to increase collaboration within the homeless-serving sector. They support the programs and services offered by agencies, and coordinate efforts to ensure that Calgarians do not fall through the gaps. They also disseminate knowledge throughout the system, strengthening the sector as a whole.
Data and Analytics
Our data and analytics team collect and analyze data from the agencies that make up the Homeless-Serving System of Care. We use this data to make decisions and provide solutions that create meaningful change throughout the entire homeless-serving sector.
Homeless Management Information System (HMIS)
The HMIS team oversees and maintains the robust electronic database that Calgary Homeless Foundation uses to collect data from homeless-serving agencies. This helps us make decisions on how to develop an integrated system-of-care, making it easier for individuals and families to access services and supports.
Marketing and Communications
The primary role of the Marketing and Communications department is to serve the communications needs of Calgary Homeless Foundation. The role of this team is unique, because they help other branches within the organization, in addition to communicating to external stakeholders. Their mission is to serve, educate, inform and inspire.
Government Relations and Policy
The Government Relations and Policy team helps Calgary Homeless Foundation develop and maintain key stakeholder relationships with all orders of government.
Governments are essential partners in the delivery of services and affordable housing stock, with contributions from the federal and provincial governments accounting for eighty-eight percent of our annual budget.
The team also analyzes public policies, offering recommendations on how we can adapt to changes in government in ways that support the ongoing creation of an integrated system of care.
Fund Development obtains funding for the work of Calgary Homeless Foundation that is not directly funded by the municipal, provincial and federal governments. Eleven per cent off our budget is sourced from donations and grants.
Through this department, Calgary Homeless Foundation fosters relationships with donors and prospective donors, ensuring they are valued and stewarded.
We also ensure that our board members and staff appreciate the importance of philanthropic gifts. We empower them to identify ways in which their work or ideas can inspire new ways to seek philanthropic or grant support.
Finance and Operations
Finance & Operations
The Finance and Operations team provides strategic, financial, office, legal, contractual, procurement and technology services to ensure that Calgary Homeless Foundation can work effectively with its funders, community partners and funded agencies.
Information and Technology
The Information Technology department is responsible for supporting the success of Calgary Homeless Foundation’s purpose and ambition through technology.
That means aligning our technology strategy to our goals and providing technological solutions such as data and analytics infrastructure, networks, servers, security, hardware, software and telecommunications, as well as general support services.
The Human Resources team is responsible for ensuring that Calgary Homeless Foundation’s HR strategies, policies and processes align with the organization’s goals, core values, and culture.
