The purpose of the HOME Committee is to coordinate care and prioritize housing resources for the most vulnerable homeless individuals in Orange County. One's ranking on the HOME Committee list is determined using the Vulnerability Index-Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool (VI-SPDAT), then whether someone is fleeing domestic violence, then length of time homeless, then housing status (sheltered vs. unsheltered). The task force obtains consent forms for each client on the list.
Service providers from across the county from non-profits, DSS and other county departments, UNC Hospitals, veterans organizations, law enforcement, private attorneys, and more are involved.
