The Governor’s Interagency Council on Homelessness (GICH) planning survey is now available at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PDBGVLJ through November 30. Please complete the survey, if applicable, and distribute broadly through your networks and encourage participation as responses will inform the 2019-2023 Oklahoma Plan to End Homelessness. The GICH will also be promoting through traditional media. Please ask your agencies/organizations to promote on their social media and other platforms as often as possible between now and November 30. We need your help in securing input from across the state. If your agency/organization has regional or local sites/staff, please also encourage their participation and assistance in promoting.
The GICH will be reaching out to a broad group of stakeholders, including but not limited to tribal governments, OCCY, child welfare staff, funders, social service organizations, law enforcement, emergency responders, schools, elected officials, hospitals, medical clinics, etc. The GICH wants to ensure inclusion of both traditional and nontraditional partners who may have some engagement and insight into relevant programs, services or needs.
The survey link is also posted to the GICH website which is now live. You can access it at gich.ok.gov. Please note there is more work to be done to the site, and it is a work in progress.
Please also consider providing a link to the GICH website on your agency/organization website.
