StandardsOur current version of the standards has evolved from a rich history of more than 30 years in partnership with individuals, groups of like-minded programs, and health and human services organizations. Since the release of the first version of standards, they have been developed, revisited, revised and are continually evolving in order to provide the most current best practice.
|The 2015 Edition of the Governance & Management Standards, which includes CAC’s Process Manual, is available for purchase through Lulu.com. Program standards are available on the Members Only page for Organizations.|
Calgary Homeless Foundation
In order to promote excellence in practice, CAC continues to work with Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) to utilize our process for their Case Management Standards. As CHF continues to coordinate Calgary’s Homeless-Serving System of Care towards the achievement of Functional Zero homelessness in Calgary, it works with the local community in developing a process by which standards are reviewed and supported. This allows programs working with the case management model to implement and consistently demonstrate common standards.
