Planning & Provider Engagement

OneHeart’s provider partners gather on a monthly basis to discuss matters related to guests, residential life, and OneHeart programming.

As the campus concept was being developed, representatives from many of these agencies were directly involved in small workgroups focusing on campus priority areas: site planning, the referral/intake process, Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) database, life safety, childcare, and the transformation process. In addition, the Native Leadership Circle guided the cultural aspects of the campus, and a Young Adult Advisory Council (comprised of young people who had experienced homelessness, poverty, or foster care themselves) helped to inform staff on how best to serve youth at OneHeart.
