6.4 Serving People Better through Emergency Shelter

Emergency shelters are an important part of a community’s Housing First strategy. This workshop will cover numerous topics, including: inclusive emergency shelter policies for subpopulations such as LGBTQ persons, incorporating rapid re-housing principles to help families and youth exit shelter more quickly, and ensuring high standards of health and safety. The workshop is designed for shelter providers who are looking to improve the way they serve families and youth.
