You’ve spread the word and you’re ready to help launch a regional collaborative

What does it look like?

There are agencies:

A mix of sheltering agencies and referral agencies (around 8, but each region is different) spanning a county, a city, or even a state, depending on the best fit for your area.

A kick-off meeting:

Caravan Studios will schedule this informative meeting for all participating agencies and stakeholders. This in-person or online meeting will take an hour, and will include introductions to all of the participating agencies, account set up, and testing the process to some practice in how the Safe Shelter Collaborative works. 

An official launch:

When all participating agencies are ready to go, we'll select a date to officially launch the collaborative. At this point, agencies have all of the information needed and feel comfortable moving forward together.
