Tools You Can Use

In order to build a house, you might need a hammer, measuring tape, and screwdrivers. In order to bake a cake, you might need a mixer, measuring cups, bowls, and a cake pan. What tools do you need to improve your service delivery or organization, or know more about your community, or end homelessness? One of the most essential tools in the human services sector is a valid, reliable, and consistent tool that allows for a definitive assessment of the needs of clients. Without a proper assessment of clients, chances are very good that resources will be allocated inefficiently – perhaps through a first come, first served system or serving the squeakiest wheel first. OrgCode has developed the gold standard of assessment tools, the SPDAT. Now in its fourth year, the SPDAT is available in multiple versions to meet your needs, and is even integrated with many HMIS programs.

Service Prioritization Decision Assistance Tool (SPDAT)

The SPDAT is an evidence-informed approach to assessing an individual’s or family’s acuity. The tool, across multiple components, prioritizes who to serve next and why, while concurrently identifying the areas in the person/family’s life where support is most likely necessary in order to avoid housing instability.
