                                    INTRODUCTION

This handbook outlines the business plan to be implemented by the Homeless Summit, a
working committee of the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County, for the Winter
Nights Program. It provides basic information about the Program mission and objective,
history, organizational structure, facility, monitoring, eligibility criteria, screening
procedures, safety and security, staffing, communication strategies, and budget.


                                EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Winter Nights Program is a volunteer effort under the auspices of the Interfaith
Council of Contra Costa County funded by contributions from faith congregations,
foundations, and individuals in Contra Costa County.

This effort grows out of a belief in the basic dignity of all. We believe that all who live
in a society are connected to one another by our common humanity, and that a society
works best when all its members share in its resources. We believe that generously
sharing resources ensures that every member of a society has access to what is required to
meet basic human needs and to live in dignity.

We recognize that for some, difficult or even insurmountable barriers stand in the way of
this simple goal of a decent life. Thus, we believe that those of us who are privileged to
live in comfort and security have a responsibility to reach out to assist others in distress,
sharing our bounty. This Program strives to reach out to some of the most unfortunate
and desperate members of our communities.

The Program provides shelter for homeless families with children and ambulatory elders
capable of self-care. It operates from mid -October through the end of April. On a
rotating basis, congregational facilities serve as a shelter and are staffed by qualified paid
professionals and volunteers.

The Program’s goal is to provide protection from the elements for some of the county’s
most vulnerable homeless individuals, namely children and elders. Additionally, it is
anticipated that support for basic needs will assist these individuals and families to make
progress toward their goal of permanent housing. The Program facility hours of operation
are 5:30 pm to 6:30 am weekdays and 24 hours on Saturday and Sunday. The Program
offers participants with a hot evening meal and a cold breakfast provided by the host
congregation. Case management services may be available.

On weekdays, participants may participate in the daytime oasis program at the St.
Vincent DePaul offices in Pittsburg. It provides resources to support job and permanent
housing searches. Equipment for the care of small children by their parents will be
available. Some congregations may provide weekend activities on-site or in the
community for residents who wish to participate.

All participating clients are screened as described in the section: Screening Procedures.
Applicants who have not undergone Screening Procedures will not be permitted to
participate in the Program. All clients are informed of and required to abide by the Client
Participation Guidelines, contained in an accompanying document. The Council has
established these guidelines to ensure a safe and orderly environment for all. Continued
                                                                                             3
participation in the Program is dependent on the client’s acceptance and compliance with
these guidelines. Health and safety considerations in the operation and maintenance of
the facilities are a primary concern.

The Council has developed qualifications and job descriptions for the paid professional
staff and volunteer staff as set forth in the section: Staffing. All staff and clients are
instructed with regard to Program policies and procedures, including safety and
emergency plans. Volunteers are instructed in their responsibilities and the boundaries of
their role, and clients are informed fully about the Client Participation Guidelines.

Records of operation are maintained, and ongoing and final evaluations are conducted to
ensure prompt and effective problem-solving and identification of opportunities to
improve the Program.

The Council will maintain open communications regarding the Program with interested
parties, including local government officials, the local community, professional and
volunteer staff, congregations, and partner organizations. A variety of mechanisms have
been developed to facilitate these communications. See Communications section.

Program fundraising and financial matters are managed by the Interfaith Council.


                                       MISSION

To protect homeless families and seniors from winter weather by providing shelter in a
clean, safe and warm environment.

                                        Objective

To organize, fund, and operate a program that will provide temporary nighttime shelter
from mid October to late April for families with children and ambulatory elders in Contra
Costa County who are experiencing homelessness.


                           HISTORY OF THE PROGRAM

The Winter Nights Program began operation in November, 2004 and has built upon the
experience gained by faith communities in the past in another effort to house those
experiencing homelessness. Preceded by the Family Employment Resources Service
Together Emergency Shelter Program (FERST), many of the same congregations came
together to implement the Winter Nights Program.


As the waiting list for shelter beds grew longer, members of the faith community joined
with homeless service providers to form the Homeless Summit, under the sponsorship of
the Interfaith Council of Contra Costa County, to raise funds and once again develop a
program to address the issue of homelessness in our community.

As we enter our fourth year of operation, we continue building and enriching the program
to improve our services and more fully address unmet needs of our homeless families and
seniors.
                                                                                       4

                                SHELTER FACILITIES

The Program will be housed in the facilities of volunteer faith congregations in central
and east Contra Costa County. Each facility will provide a space that can accommodate
up to 30 persons and permits effective supervision by professional and volunteer staff. It
will include sufficient rest rooms to serve the number of clients admitted. If sufficient
shower facilities do not exist on site, arrangements will be made with a nearby,
convenient organization, such as a recreational facility, to provide them. The facilities
will have simple cooking facilities to permit serving meals prepared elsewhere, warming
baby food, and preparing warm beverages. Some congregations may prepare meals on
site, if they possess the necessary equipment and space. Each facility must comply with
health and safety regulations, fire code and other regulatory requirements of the
jurisdiction in which it exists. A primary consideration is that the facility will provide a
clean, safe, and warm environment.

The program will be in operation at such facilities from approximately mid October
through late Apr. Operating hours during this period will be from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.
Monday through Friday, and 24 hours on Saturday and Sunday. Some congregations
may provide daytime weekend activities for clients requiring them. No clients will
remain in the facility during non-operating hours.



                                    THE PROGRAM

The Winter Nights Program will provide a clean, safe, and warm facility at night during
winter for homeless families with children and for homeless seniors. The Program will
serve up to 30 persons at any given time during the operating season. Initially, entrance
into the program will be staged, in order to ensure an orderly entry process and
orientation. No more than15 people will be admitted at any one time.

Clients are referred to the Program by social service agencies in the county.


                                                                                              6
All residents of the shelter must adhere to strict rules regarding their behavior as outlined
in the Client Participation Guidelines. Failure to meet these behavioral standards can
result in removal from the program as determined by the Program Manager on
recommendation of the professional staff. Some violations result in immediate dismissal;
others will result in a written warning. Decisions regarding removal from the program
may be appealed in writing to the Executive Director. For details regarding procedures
for determining rule violation, removal from facility, and appeals process, please see
Appendix A, Client Participation Guidelines.

Length of stay in the Program will vary depending on the needs of the individual or
family. It is anticipated that not all clients will require program services for the full
duration of operations. Some will achieve their goal of permanent housing in shorter
periods of time.

Adults, including seniors, are required to work their way towards self-sufficiency and
housing. Resources available include program case management, participation in
daytime multi-service programs, and the resources of the program daytime oasis site.
Some clients are employed. All adults, including seniors will be referred to appropriate
agencies and programs to assist them to achieve safe and stable housing.

On entrance into the Program clients will be asked to verify in a signed statement that
they will comply with the Client Participation Guidelines and that they will use available
resources to work toward self-sufficiency and permanent housing. After a client has
participated in the program for 30 days, progress toward that goal will be reviewed, and if
the client is making progress, and commits to continue his efforts, another 30 days in the
program will be authorized.

Children continue to attend the schools where they have been registered prior to
participating in the Program. Parents are responsible for the care and supervision of their
children at all times, including during daytime hours.

Transportation to and from the facility will be the responsibility of the clients. It is
anticipated that some clients will have their own vehicles. For those who do not,
transportation to the nearest public transportation will be provided. If further assistance
is required, Program staff will refer clients to existing programs that provide BART and
bus tickets. Transportation will be provided to assist parents in getting their children to
the schools where they are registered. All vehicles parked at the rotating shelter facilities
must be registered with the State and with the Program. The Program will maintain
records of the registration information of all client vehicles. Ample parking is available
at all sites, and no spillover parking onto adjacent streets is anticipated.

Clients will receive a warm evening meal and a cold breakfast provided by the hosting
congregations. Congregations will provide supplies for bag lunches that will be prepared
by clients. Staff members will assist clients during mealtimes at the facility. No cooking
by clients will be permitted. Volunteer staff will warm baby food and prepare coffee and
other warm beverages for meals. Parents will be expected to provide food for babies.

The Program provides clients with sleeping and restroom facilities. Shower
accommodations will be on-site or provided at other nearby facilities through prior
arrangements. The Program will supply air mattresses, bedding, towels, and basic
toiletries. Female residents will provide their own feminine hygiene products and families
                                                                                              7
will provide diapers for their children. Clients may participate, on a volunteer basis, in
clean-up activities of the facility, including cleaning of restroom facilities. They will be
expected to maintain their own space and belongings in good order. Only limited
amounts of personal belongings can be accommodated at the shelter sites.

Residents who are ill will be placed in motels until they have recovered or, if necessary,
will be hospitalized. In some instances, the Program may issue motel vouchers in the
event a client becomes ill and cannot remain in the facility. Otherwise, costs of care are
the responsibility of the client. Program staff will refer the client to public services and
programs as the staff member deems appropriate.

During the hours the shelter is not in operation, a daytime oasis site will be made
available at another location to clients who are not employed, or do not have other
planned activities. Resources for job search activities and care of small children will be
available.

Professional case management services will be provided by the Program.

Clients will be invited to complete an exit survey when they leave the program to provide
data to assess program performance, identify opportunities for quality improvement, and
additional service needs of the clients. See Appendix B, Client Participation Guidelines
for survey and Client Participation Guidelines for additional information.


            PROGRAM MONITORING AND QUALITY ASSURANCE

To ensure that the Winter Nights program fulfills its mission and meets the needs of the
clients according to the standards that have been set, the Program will engage in a
continual process of monitoring operations. In addition, a Summary Program Evaluation
will be conducted by the Executive Director and the Steering Committee. The Summary
Evaluation will be reported to the Interfaith Council

The Winter Nights Program will provide opportunities for clients of the facility,
professional and volunteer staff, local government officials and local residents to register
any complaints or problems that may arise with the operation of the Program. Records
will be maintained of concerns expressed and actions taken in response. Such
information will be included in the process of evaluating the program. (See
communications section for more information).

The Site Supervisor will maintain a record of daily operations, including number of
clients served by category, professional staff on duty, number and names of volunteers
present, information regarding referrals made, and any unusual events, such as illnesses
identified, arrival of unscreened applicants, safety issues, disruptive events, etc.

Clients will be encouraged to make suggestions and raise issues of concern with the Site
Supervisor, the Program Manager, or the Executive Director. Any problems identified
will be noted and corrected to ensure proper operation of the Program. Professional and
volunteer staff will take immediate action to manage problems as they arise.

Throughout the months of operation, regular staff meetings will be held to review
Program operations and conduct future planning. It will be conducted by the Program
                                                                                               8
Manager in conjunction with the Executive Director and representatives of the Steering
Committee, professional staff and representatives of hosting faith congregations.

Faith congregations will be asked to submit an evaluation following completion of the
week(s) in which they provide volunteer staff to the facility. The report should include a
summary of the experience from the point of view of the volunteers, suggestions for
improvement of operations, and any problems experienced. The information so obtained
will be used on a continual basis to improve operations, and will be included in the
summary evaluation of the Program.

A voluntary exit survey will be conducted when clients leave the Program to assess
Program success, opportunities for improvement, and further services required. Results
will be included in the Summary Program Evaluation.


                              ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

The Winter Nights Program serves families with children and ambulatory individuals
over the age of 65 who are capable of self-care. All clients must be clean and sober and
adults must commit in writing for themselves and their family (See Appendix A, Client

                             SCREENING PROCEDURES

Clients participating in the Winter Nights Program are screened prior to participation to
ensure that they meet the Eligibility Criteria described above. The ultimate purpose of
the screening procedure is to ensure that the needs of the clients accepted can be safely
met within the limited resources of the Winter Nights Program. Screening procedures are
described below. During the screening process, potential clients will be assured of their
right of confidentiality, will be treated in a respectful manner with awareness of the great
stress the clients are experiencing.

Winter Nights Program Referrals:
Families and individuals who meet the definitions of the clients to be served by the
Winter Night Program are referred for social service agencies.

Initial screening:
An initial screening will be conducted by phone to determine likely eligibility for the
program, and avoid undue inconvenience to individuals already under great stress.
Families and individuals who have special needs, such as disabilities or medical needs,
that cannot be accommodated safely within the capabilities and resources of the Winter
Nights, or who otherwise do not meet admission criteria will be referred to appropriate
service providers and public programs for assistance.

In-Person Screening:
To determine acceptance into the Program, clients will be interviewed in person by the
Program Manager to verify information obtained in the telephone screening and gather
other information listed above under eligibility. If the applicant is denied admission to
the Program they will be referred to other more appropriate services for assistance.
Clients will be required to provide picture identification, or Drivers License, and vehicle
registration documentation, which will be copied and placed in the client file. Applicants
will be fully informed about the Client Participation Guidelines. The client will be
expected to sign the Client Participation Guidelines Acceptance Form (See Appendix A
Client Participation Guidelines). Active drug or alcohol abuse, as determined by


                                                                                          10
behavioral observation by the staff, presence of a disability that cannot be safely
accommodated, or non-homelessness would result in disqualification.
In the event admission is denied an appeal can be made in writing to the Executive
Director, who will make the final determination.

Intake Process:
On first entry into the Shelter, all clients will meet with the Site Supervisor and screening
information will be reviewed. Any medications in their possession will be recorded and
stored for safety reasons. Staff will ensure that prohibited items, such as weapons or
drugs are not brought into the facility. Clients will be fully oriented to shelter operations,
layout of the facility, and emergency procedures. Any remaining questions regarding the
Client Participation Guidelines will be answered. All individuals entering the facility
will sign in and out on a daily basis. Parents will sign in for children.

Health Considerations:
Applicants to the Winter Nights program will provide initial information about the
medical status of all family members during the screening process as described above.
On entry into the shelter a health screening, including a test for tuberculosis, will be
conducted. Appropriate follow up will be provided in the event of a positive
tuberculosis test result. Tuberculosis screening will be conducted by the Health Care for
the Homeless Program of the Contra Costa Health Department at the shelter sites.
Individuals who require medical care will be referred to County clinics or for emergency
care at the county hospital as appropriate.

Individuals with obvious signs or symptoms of active communicable illness that are
deemed contagious or detrimental to the health of the client or others would result in the
client not being admitted to the shelter, but given a motel voucher and referred to the
appropriate medical facility for treatment. Clients accepted into the Program will be
carefully observed for communicable illnesses, such as cold and flu, on a continual basis
by the professional staff during their stay at the facility. Mental or addictive illness
controlled by treatment is not a disqualifiying condition. Untreated mental and addictive
illness, or symptoms raising safety concerns would constitute a special need requiring
referral to treatment services and other programs during the screening process.

Appeals Process:
Applicants denied admission to the program may appeal the decision in writing to the
Executive Director. Appeals will be granted if the applicant can demonstrate eligibility
as stated in the Program Criteria. The Executive Director will make a final determination
on the merits of the appeal. A decision will be made and communicated within 48 hours
of receipt of the written appeal by the Program staff.


                               SAFETY AND SECURITY

In order to ensure the safety and security of the participants, staff and volunteers of the
Winter Nights Program, as well as the safety and security of the surrounding community,
the following actions will be taken and policies will be in force.

Professional and volunteer staff and clients will be instructed in health and fire safety and
plans for emergency evacuations. Appropriate signs, including exit signs, will be posted.
A fire extinguisher will be placed by every exit door. First aid supplies, and other
                                                                                           11
emergency supplies for disaster preparedness will be on hand. Orientation to safety
procedures and physical particulars will be provided to all clients at each new site.

Client Participation Guidelines are designed to ensure the safety of all. Below are some
of the standards the Program will implement and expect clients to follow (for a full
discussion, see the Client Participation Guidelines handbook):

                  Absolutely no alcohol or illegal drugs will be permitted.
                  No weapons will be permitted.

                  No open flame devices will be permitted.
                  No visitors to the clients of the shelter will be permitted.
                  Clients will be expected to remain in the shelter for the night once they
                   have entered.
                  No loitering or panhandling in the adjacent neighborhoods is
                   permitted.

staff at all times. During night hours, it is preferred that at least one person of each
gender is present. During evening hours it is recommended that 6 to 8 volunteers be on
duty on various schedules to provide adequate personnel to welcome arriving
participants, serve dinner and clean up, and supervise activities such as hygiene,
homework, and recreation. If showers are provided off site additional volunteers may be
required. No more volunteers than necessary should be scheduled to avoid overwhelming
clients, who will require as restful an environment as possible.

the Monday of their assigned week, and to prepare equipment and supplies for transport
to the next congregation on the following Monday. Volunteers will also be required to
