Collaborative Solutions, in partnership with C4 Innovations, will deliver a one-day training that will provide an overview of Housing First principles and how they can be tailored to different projects.
Nationwide, many CoC and ESG projects undertake to implement a Housing First philosophy in their workplace. Most focus on a lower barrier entry and a small level of user choice in their service delivery. This training will look at the differing principles involved in implementing Housing First and how each principle is essential to build a program with fidelity.
The training will discuss how to implement Housing First principles within any homeless service system program. The training will be interactive with discussion, shout outs, brainstorming activities, and small group exercises.
Participants will learn from real life program implementation and leave with practical advice on how to introduce changes to form a true Housing First project.
By the end of the training:
· Each participant should be able to list 5 key housing first principles.
· Participants should be able to articulate why most projects nationwide struggle to implement a true housing first philosophy.
· Participants should be able to plan their first steps in changing to a Housing First approach to services.
