Many providers and community leaders are exploring options for retooling transitional housing programs to improve their communities’ overall performance. This workshop will identify the steps programs can take in the retooling process, and provide examples and tools for taking those steps. Providers who have retooled their transitional housing will share their experiences about making the shift, and cover topics such as staffing, contracts, and working with board members. Retooling for single and family transitional housing models will be included.
