For too long, many shelters have exercised therapeutic incarceration – adding more and more programs within them that do not have a direct bearing on long-term housing success and which can actually incentivize homelessness. On the other hand, some shelters are so sparse in service delivery that it is no wonder there is no connection to permanent solutions.
This 1.5 day workshop focuses on transforming shelters as a critical part of ending homelessness when they have a strong housing orientation. From intake procedures to staff engagement strategies; rules to barring practices; built form considerations to approaches to housing engagement – this Learning Clinic is rich in not just provocative content, but also practical adjustments shelters can make to improve positive destinations out of shelter. This clinic also features specialized streams for families, youth, and single adults.
