Centralized Housing Intake Process
Centralized Housing Intake Process (CHIP)
CHIP is a partnership between Phoenix Residential Society, Carmichael Outreach, YWCA, and Street Culture to provide housing and support services to individuals who are homeless. Phoenix operates CHIP and completes assessment for all homeless individuals that are referred. All individuals are assessed using the SPDAT and are then referred to the most appropriate partner agency based on the assessment results and most appropriate fit. Referring Community Service Organizations complete a VI-SPDAT assessment to forward to CHIP. All referrals are priority based.
