Event description

Description

Homes for Families is hosting a day of trainings for EA family shelter direct service and supervisory staff. This Shelter Staff Training Summit is an opportunity for EA shelter providers to come together around core practice topics. The range of trainings and plenary topics are based on what you, our network of family shelter providers, have told us you want and the field needs greater access to.

Topics of training break outs are:

  • Mental health 101: mental and emotional health

  • Domestic violence and safety planning

  • Child trauma and wellness

  • Substance use

  • Crisis Intervention, de-escalation, self-care and collective healing

We will have a keynote on comprehensive and compassionate assessment and service delivery with Carmela J. DeCandia, Psy.D. Artemis Associates, LLC., followed by training breakouts, and an afternoon plenary on cultural competency. We also hope to create space for you to re-energize and feel inspired in the vital work that you do every day!

We encourage you to come as a team, so your agency can maximize access to trainings offered. Each attendee will be able to choose one break out to attend.

Please note there are two different ticket prices: a ticket for each staff person is $20 if your agency is an HFF member and up to date with its dues. A ticket for each staff person from a non-member agency is $50. If your agency is unable to pay via credit card, please let Liz know and you can use this invoice and submit a check. If you have any questions about membership or ticket prices, please contact Liz, Director of Operations and Member Engagement: epeck@homesforfamilies.org.
