SPDAT

The SPDAT and all of its associated products (VI-SPDAT, Family SPDAT, Family VI-SPDAT, Youth SPDAT, Next Steps Tool for Youth, Justice Discharge VI-SPDAT, Diversion and Prevention Family VI-SPDAT, Diversion and Prevention VI-SPDAT) are the most used suite of products in the world in triaging and assessing the needs of homeless populations.

They are created directly with the voice of people with lived experience. They are vetted through experts in trauma, domestic violence, and through lenses of anti-oppression and cultural competency. They are rigorously tested and all grounded in evidence with considerable academic scrutiny.

All of the tools are free to download. The VI-SPDAT suite of tools (VI-SPDAT, Family VI-SPDAT, Next Steps Tool for Youth, Justice Discharge VI-SPDAT, Diversion and Prevention Family VI-SPDAT, Diversion and Prevention VI-SPDAT) are available for use immediately without any special training, though we do recommend that you watch this training video first. The SPDAT, Family SPDAT and Youth SPDAT require training prior to use and there is a cost associated with the training. Reach out to Jeff to book your training.

Communities that have used the SPDAT tools for three months or more are eligible to go through a Train the Trainer seminar to have ongoing sustainability.
