Today organizations who work with those experiencing homelessness are at the Lighthouse to learn from Ian De Jong from OrgCode about using SPDAT.
SPDAT is a Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool. The goal is that through this assessment individuals will spend less time in emergency shelters, be provided more individualized care, and we will be able to collect better data. Better data will allow all of us to know where the greatest needs are in our community.
Thank you to the United Way for bring this to Saskatoon so that organizations can have a common language to discuss the needs of those we serve.
