Navigators act as the main outreach specialists in the county's coordinated system and work to assess and provide connections to services for the homeless. To ensure that clients are given access to services designed explicitly for them, the Citrus Heights HART navigator Fatemah, pictured above, does most of her work in the field by engaging potential clients where they live. Her initial interaction with a new client consists of a test designed to assess vulnerability to homelessness; after the test is given, Fatemah remains available as a resource to her clients and connects them with resources that range from downtown shelters to detox programs to help applying for food stamps.
