RCSD T.H.R.I.VE. (HIP- Homeless Innovative Program)
RCSD T.H.R.I.V.E. began as a pilot. The pilot (Upstream) was a collaboration between the Redwood City School District, LifeMoves, Chapin Hall and the Chan-Zuckenberg Initiative.
We are continuing to edit manual as we reflect and refine on our practices.
This manual outlines RCSD's preventative homeless initiative and the tools needed to identify, refer, and serve families through case management services in order to stabilize their housing and household situation. The manual highlights RCSD’s pilot initiative and collaboration that aims to prevent youth and family homelessness through defined identification processes and a tiered case management model; through this intervention the initiative works to support the community school model to better serve students in the four domains of their development: intellectual, social, emotional, and physical.
