As part of its Standards of Excellence initiative, Home For Good will be hosting the first in a series of free day-long seminars meant to support service providers in their efforts to end homelessness. Provided in coordination with the Center for Urban and Community Services (CUCS) and Housing Innovations, these capacity-building sessions will provide an interactive opportunity for participants to learn about and share insights on successful strategies in serving those with the highest barriers to and highest need for housing.
Each session is approximately one-day long; sessions are offered on multiple days to accommodate participants’ schedules. Registration is required. Space is limited to four participants per organization; participants from the same organization are not required to attend the same session. Training sessions are meant for those that provide direct services and/or most closely manage direct service staff; please thoroughly review the course descriptions to ensure the most appropriate staff persons are registered. All sessions are free and available to any organizations that serve the homeless population, regardless of the sources of the funding utilized.
