Files: Integrating Cultural Competence into Everyday Practices by Miriam Delphin and Amie Parikh (PPT | 211 KB | 23 pages)

It is critical that homeless service providers—who must address a wide array of cultural differences—offer culturally competent services which value individual uniqueness and demonstrate the capacity to deliver services in line with the beliefs, values, and practices of those served. In this interactive workshop, participants learned about the importance of cultural competence and acquire the skills necessary to apply that understanding to their work.
