Education and training play a critical role in our commitment to lead a collaborative network focused on solutions to end and prevent homelessness in our community. Our collaborative Collective Impact Model enables all of our partners and collaborators to be familiar with and use best practices.

We continue to add, update, as well as curate educational opportunities, training, and collaborative meetings.
