LA-HOP Roles for Outreach

Who are SPA Outreach Coordinators? Each SPA has up to three SPA-level Outreach Coordinators. He or she receives and reviews all outreach requests for their SPA and assigns requests to the most appropriate outreach team (via the Team Lead).

Who are Team Leads? These are usually outreach supervisors or designees.  He or she accepts the outreach requests assigned to their team; he or she then assigns these requests to specific members of his or her team.

Who are Team Members? These are the outreach team members who perform outreach and fulfill outreach requests.  They receive and accept requests from their Team Lead and fill out the post-deployment questionnaire after they visit the person/location in need.

** If the assigned team members cannot accept the request, the Team Lead should assign the request to other team members. If this is not possible, the Lead should un-accept the request for re-assignment by the SPA coordinator.
*** In cases where contact was not made, certain scenarios will flag the request for follow-up by the SPA Coordinator.
