Systems Integration Evaluation

Led by Danielle Vaclavik, HARC Lab collaborated with Chicago-based homeless and behavioral health service providers on a network analysis assessment for their systems integration (SI) intervention, a planning coalition designed to support their Frequent User Service Engagement (FUSE) program. SI involves coordination and communication among providers across service sectors working together to achieve common goals. The FUSE planning coalition was formed to identify and address barriers to resources and gaps in services accessed by families with young children experiencing homelessness. Results were used to guide recommendations  for the coalition’s action plan. Further,  the evaluation established a network baseline to evaluate the success of the coalition over the duration of the project. This project was funded by the Society for Community Research and Action.
