On With Life
Examines process and outcomes of efforts to promote the process of helping formerly homeless residents of permanent supportive housing move on to independent living in the community. The study will provide guidance about barriers and facilitators to successful housing transitions that can promote broader implementation of such “moving on” initiatives.

Adaptation, Implementation and Fidelity Assessment of an Evidence-Based Model of Care Coordination
The project involves staff in training, technical assistance and implementation support to case management providers in the Buffalo area under contract with the Erie County Department of Mental Health. Specifically, we will participate in needs assessment, training, consultation and implementation support provided to mental health provider organizations in close collaboration with our funding source. The training provided will focus on Critical Time Intervention (CTI), an evidence-based form of case management designed to increase continuity of support for adults with severe mental illness during periods of transition.

Evidence-Based Practice in Community-Based Social Work: A Multi-Media Study
This study will recruit approximately twenty homeless-service agencies prepared to implement Critical Time Intervention, an evidence-based practice. These agencies will be randomly assigned to one of the two study conditions: face-to-face training + telephone consultation, or online training + community of practice. We will strive to train at least 80 service providers in each of the two conditions, and to track their satisfaction with the training, their experiences in implementing CTI, and their capacity to retain fidelity to the CTI model over time. We will also collect de-identified information about the clients these providers serve to assess housing status, service utilization, and psychosocial status - key outcomes
indicating efficacy of the CTI model.
