Safe Night can help communities identify unique challenges that impact people experiencing homelessness and show municipal agencies the benefits of implementing interdisciplinary coalitions to improve problem-solving for long-term outcomes.
We offer a variety of options, including:
Safe Night utilizes Risk Terrain Modeling (RTM), an evidence-based data analysis, to identify the most relevant stakeholders to inform intervention strategies to address homelessness.
Safe Night conducts a formal assessment of current municipal agency policies and practices. Together with the RTM assessment, our expert staff produces a recommendations report for the municipality and community stakeholders.
Safe Night teaches the Proactive Alliance relationship-based approach, a method that prioritizes collaboration among municipal and community providers and teaches trauma-informed, empathy-based engagement when working with people experiencing homelessness.
A successful unified homeless outreach and engagement strategy requires the participation of all relevant municipal agencies and stakeholders. Establishing team responsibilities and a strong understanding of resources are keys to success in a proactive and prevention-based outreach model.
In 2023, Wichita, Kansas, was the first municipality in the U.S. to adopt the Proactive Alliance relationship-based approach as a foundation of their work to reduce homelessness. Safe Night provided Proactive Alliance relationship-based training to Wichita's Project HOPE and the Wichita Police Department Homeless Outreach Team through the U.S. Department of Justice Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation (BCJI) grant.
Proactive Alliance was included in Project HOPE's site action plan for the BCJI, U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance. To read the report, click here.
