The WOCN 3-Tier System Toolkit for STOP Administrators

This toolkit is the culmination of STOP Administrator data collection, Action Meetings, and Site Visits led by Senior WOCN Consultants Aleese Moore-Orbih and Purvi Shah, WOCN STOP TA Consultants Zoe Flowers and Smita Satiani, and WOCN staff Senior Director Tonya Lovelace and Project Administrator Rebecca Balog. We developed this toolkit to codify learnings and to support further STOP Administrator engagement with marginalized or “3-Tier populations”. We are happy to offer this online toolkit featuring the 3-Tier System with hopes that it will be a helpful vehicle to STOP Administrators and their local programs and grantees!

The WOCN 3-Tier System Toolkit has 3 Sections listed below. We recommend for your first visit that you start with Section I and continue in number order.

  • Section I is the introductory information – an important read in order to place the 3-Tier System Tools in its most useful context and easiest application.
  • Section II contains ESSENTIAL TOOLS 1 & 2 for preparation in reaching 3-Tier populations.
  • Section III contains ESSENTIAL TOOLS 3-7, which provide promising practices for implementation.

It is strongly recommended that readers start with Section I and II before moving into Section III as the first two sections provide the needed context for the toolkit, and provide crucial guidance in reflection, self-examination, and planning before implementation.
