Use the Domestic Violence Housing First Approach Standards and Guidelines to assess progress toward implementation of the Domestic Violence Housing First (DVHF) approach and to identify areas for improvement.
Use these PowerPoint slides by Dr. Cris Sullivan to help develop effective and realistic evaluation techniques for your own program.
Implementing the DVHF approach can take time. Constantly look at what you are doing and revise as you go. Here are some ideas for institutionalizing your ongoing DVHF work:
- Establish a committee of management, leadership, and direct service staff that will meet regularly to assess where the organization is and what needs to be improved
- Carve out time during staff meetings to talk about DVHF, share successes and challenges
- ASK survivors! Use this form (English & Spanish) and/or this survey as examples for collecting feedback.
