Event description

Description

Training logistics: This is a two-day training occurring from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Wednesday, October 18 and Thursday, October 19th, 2017. Your registration confirms your attendance for BOTH days.

This training is being hosted by the Hawaii Department of Human Services/Med-QUEST Division. It is intended for Hawaii's supportive housing service providers who are frontline staff working directly with members in supportive housing or in need of supportive housing- this includes behavioral health, MCO, and non-profit frontline staff serving members in supportive housing. Attendees should plan on attending both days from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day. Lunch will be served on site. Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. for sign in. Parking with validation is $3.00 per day.

What we'll cover: Supportive Housing is an innovative model combining housing and services to serve highly-vulnerable people. It improves mental and physical health, generates cost savings to public systems and benefits communities.

On Day One, this training will provide an overview of supportive housing, emphasizing best-practice models for people experiencing homelessness, people who are unstably housed and cycling through institutions of care, or people in assisted living situations who could live more independently in the community with supportive housing services. Participants will leave the session with a new understanding of why supportive housing works, will be able to differentiate the important players and partners that collaborate to make supportive housing effective for individuals with complex needs, and will learn how supportive housing best practice standards are supported in Hawaii 's recently submitted amendment to the Medicaid QUEST Integration managed care program.

Day Two will dive deeper into the key components that make supportive housing work: housing and services. Whether a supportive housing project is managing relationships with landlords or managing the housing themselves, participants will come away with an understanding of the unique and best practices supportive housing requires. Additionally, successful supportive housing service delivery requires providers to focus on housing-stability and common challenges around housing and rehousing tenants in supportive housing. Day Two will also dig into evidence-based practices such as harm reduction, motivational interviewing and delivering engaging, voluntary services with clients who have complex needs. This interactive day of training will leave participants prepared to implement the best practices that make supportive housing work.
