Flagler honored with national COA Innovative Practices Award
The national Council on Accreditation (COA) has presented St. Joseph’s Villa with the 2013 Innovative Practices Award honoring the performance and quality improvement of our Flagler Housing & Homeless Services. Our case study submission about Flagler’s multi-year transition to rapid re-housing and resulting outcomes was one of two selected winners in the nation.
“We are grateful to the COA for this recognition, and we owe it to all of our partners who supported Flagler’s transition to the new model of rapid re-housing,” said Kimberly Tucker, Senior Director of Housing & Homeless Services. “Through rapid re-housing we are serving more homeless individuals and families than ever before, and a higher percentage are remaining housed after receiving service.”
Flagler expects to serve more than 300 households (approximately 800 individuals) in the Richmond and Tri-Cities areas this year.
St. Joseph’s Villa is certified by the Council on Accreditation for children and family services.
Congratulations to our Flagler team!
