Event description

Description

Learn about how to best use diversion techniques to divert individuals and families from shelter. Shelter diversion programs are identified by the National Alliance to End Homelessness as best practice for prevention of homelessness for individuals and families seeking to enter a shelter. This strategy avoids the trauma of homelessness by helping individuals and families to identify immediate alternative housing arrangements while connecting them with the services and financial resources needed to achieve permanent housing. Case management staff guides the individual or family through the process of developing a comprehensive, reality-based plan for ensuring a secure future in stable housing.

Diversion conserves shelter beds and assistance for those who truly have no resources of their own and no options other than a homeless shelter or the streets.

Our Trainers will be Iain De Jong and David Tweedie from OrgCode Consulting.
