  THE COUNTY OF YORK 

YORK COUNTY HUMAN SERVICES 

RFP: COMMUNITY OF HOPE MOBILIZER POSITION 


I. Project 

  • York County Human Services Department and office of The York County Children, Youth and Families became most recently connected with Casey Family Programs in 2016 to help the division better serve at risk children and families. Casey Family Programs helped the departments gather data and better determine where unique interventions could be targeted in an effort to support families better and keep more children from being placed in out of home care. 
  • Through this work, a stronger partnership with the School District for the City of York was born. Given that a large number of children entering the child welfare system came from this area, it made sense to work more closely with the schools to look at some synergizes that could be gained from having these large child serving systems align their resources and work to overcome barriers for the students along with building a stronger community.
  • Casey Family Programs continued to support the local effort by sharing information on their Community of Hope models around the country that sought to strengthen the community neighborhoods where they served, used data to help target interventions and track success, and highly valued community driven involvement and prioritization. Many members of the local effort visited many different sites nationally to gather ideas and get a better understanding of the successes these areas. Ultimately a Community of Hope site was established at the Hannah Penn School and the targeted area for the work was further refined to the neighborhood in this footprint. The County Human Services Department, The Office of Children Youth and Families and a small CDBG allocated through the city funded the basic necessities of a mobilizer position. 
  • Casey Family Programs continued to provide technical assistance and small amounts of financial support through 2019. The program continues to be overseen by the County who is currently the primary funder for the mobilizer position, and it has strong collaboration with the principal and others at Hannah Penn School who provide significant in kind support by providing a large space, cleaning and maintenance to the site.  An advisory board was established at the beginning of the project and refined to include those providing major supports in the schools along with funders. It is hoped the community members can ultimately be involved with this board as well.

Point In Time Homeless Count Survey

 WPMT FOX43 was out with us yesterday, as we were conducting our point in time homeless count survey yesterday.

Thanks  to all of the generous donations by many in our local community, we  were also able to provide warm winter gear items (hats, gloves, coats,  blankets, sweatshirts, warm pants, socks) as well as various hygiene  items (deodorant, razors, shave gel, body wash, toothbrushes,  toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, dental floss, etc.) and food for  some who were very hungry.

We also spent time with every  person, to offer available resources to help improve their current  situation and provide information on shelter, housing, food banks,  disabilities, clothing and employment.
