Campaign Progress and Performance Metrics: A First Glance

Since 2010, LDC as the Campaign Coordinator has tracked on a monthly basis the housing status of each client engaged in the program.  This data has now been aggregated, allowing us to take a closer look at outcomes and analyze performance metrics of the Campaign’s activities.

Phase 1 and 2 Housing Placements over Time

This first graph is a visual representation of the Campaign’s progress over time, showing our combined Registry Week and Blitz Week goals against gross and net housing placements since the Campaign’s initiation.  As you can see, the Campaign has significantly exceeded its goal of housing 225 individuals, by taking 351 formerly homeless individuals off the streets!  In addition, the sharp uptick in November 2012 represents the success of Blitz Week, where Campaign partners successfully housed 86 people in 3 days.

Phase 1 Retention Rate in Permanent Housing 

This month, our analysts at LeSar Development Consultants reviewed the program retention rate of Phase 1 (Registry Week) clients in permanent housing, which has slowly dropped to 78% as of February 2013.  Based on this rate, we are on par with national averages.  As reported by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH), approximately 75-85% of those who enter permanent supportive housing are still housed after one year, and 75% are still housed after two years.

Next quarter, we will take a closer look at Phase 2 (Blitz Week) retention rates and overall retention rates based on length of time in permanent housing.  Welook forward to reporting back with additional analyses of this data!
