2.5 Improving Your Crisis Response: Key Elements for Success

When people are at imminent risk of homelessness or initially become homeless, they turn to emergency shelters and other emergency assistance programs. This workshop will highlight the principles of an effective crisis response system, such as ensuring that communities are able to safely accommodate anyone seeking shelter (including survivors of domestic violence, people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, and families of varied configurations) and quickly meet emergency needs and put people on a path to re-housing. This workshop is targeted to local planners and Continuum of Care leaders.
