2024 Homeless Workforce Recruitment Analysis RFP
Opens Apr 18 2024 12:00 AM (PDT)
Deadline May 17 2024 11:59 PM (PDT)
Description

United Way of Greater Los Angeles (UWGLA) commissioned a report analyzing the Homeless Sector Workforce in LA County, which documented the sector’s challenges to attract, retain, and develop talent, directly impacting its ability to sustain and scale critical services and housing solutions.   

Based on the recommendations of this report and with funding support from Cedars Sinai, the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, LA Care Health Plan, Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA), and Health Net, UWGLA has launched a new initiative to build collaborative sector solutions. UWGLA has launched a Workforce Development Leadership Table (WDLT) of public sector leaders, service providers, and system investors to discuss, design, and deploy solutions. In partnership with the WDLT and other sector leaders, UWGLA will pilot strategies to reach and attract the next generation of workers, build supports that promote workforce retention, and invest in a variety of organization- and system-level solutions, starting with an initial investment in back office strengthening.   

The purpose of this RFP is to identify an experienced consultant to conduct a rapid analysis specific on recruitment and onboarding strategies happening in the homeless service sector and provide recommendations to boost recruitment of next generation workers. This analysis will inform UWGLA as we seek to design pilots and an eventual campaign with the goal being to attract a higher rate of candidates from the incoming generation seeking employment (Gen Z) into the Homeless Service Sector Workforce. Overall, we aim to learn through this next phase more about what our sector should build or improve on to strengthen our workforce and ultimately strengthen the collective work to end homelessness in LA County.
