How to Be an Awesome Shelter - Dallas

March 23 - 24, 2017

Do you have what it takes to be an awesome shelter?

If not, consider attending How to Be an Awesome Shelter  -  a clinic organized by OrgCode and supported in partnership by the Alliance's Center for Capacity Building.  Over the course of the day-and-a-half clinic you will learn how to:  

  • Ensure your shelter is housing-focused;
  • Connect your shelter to the broader of system of care and coordinated entry;
  • Implement diversion and prevention that works;
  • Move from charitable approaches of shelter delivery to professional approaches that focus on the use of data, program improvement, and core competencies of staff;
  • Practice trauma-informed shelter and practicing harm reduction within shelter;
  • Establish appropriate expectations rather that enforcing social control;
  • Assess the needs of subpopulations within shelter;
  • Ensure solid policies and procedures are in place to guide your shelter operation;
  • And how shelters can help end homelessness.
