Most appropriate for new staff, volunteers or board members that you need to get up to speed on the basics, this two hour training covers the basics of: homelessness 101; Housing First 101; the privilege of service; the most common types of services in a system of care, and who leads/manages the system of care; where funding comes from and how funding decisions are made; data and measuring outputs and outcomes; boundaries; why privacy and confidentiality is important; why racial equity and inclusion matter; an introduction to the service orientation of working with people who are homeless or marginally housed; and, the basics of self-care.
Conducting a System Check Up: A Session for Community Leaders, Agency Executives and Funders
This session is designed for leaders of the homelessness response in a local community, executives of organizations that deliver homeless services, and funders. After outlining why a system check-up is so important, the session examines how shared principles govern the system, the roadmap to ending homelessness, a holistic view of system components, regular monitoring, when a deeper dive is needed for system performance, how to invest in change and spend on impact, and how to apply an equity lens in this part of the work.
How to be a High Functioning CoC
How do you manage your system of care? What are the most advantageous approaches to governance? How do you manage the small and large P politics of what you do? For anyone that is a staff person or board member of a Continuum of Care, this training is decided to help you focus all that you do on being a high-functioning system of care, with remarkable attention to proven practices, and funding decisions that reinforce the desired changes you wish to see in your community.
