The Center for Capacity Building at the National Alliance to End Homelessness offers both online and on-site trainings to help communities implement effective strategies to end homelessness.
  • Coordinated Assessment
    By implementing front door strategies like coordinated intake, prevention, and diversion, communities can decrease entries into homelessness. These resources will provide communities with information about best practices and implementation strategies. Ready-to-use tools developed by the Alliance and other communities are also available here.
  • Performance Measurement and Improvement
    Performance improvement strategies can help your community’s homelessness assistance programs work better and achieve better outcomes. These tools will help you implement performance improvement strategies that have been used successfully by other communities.
  • System Design Clinic
    The System Design Clinic is designed to help your community move from a collection of individual programs that address homelessness to a crisis response system that makes strategic, data driven decisions.
  • Rapid Re-Housing Workshops
    Rapid re-housing is a strategy that has proven effective in ending homelessness for many. The Alliance's Center for Capacity Building offers resources to help communities implement this effective strategy.
  • System Assessment and Design
    New federal policies and a changing resource landscape are forcing communities to reassess how their homelessness programs work and are coordinated. The Alliance has numerous tools to help you assess how well your community’s homelessness assistance is functioning and design your assistance to better prevent and end homelessness.
  • Retooling Transitional Housing
    Retooling transitional housing includes shortening the amount of time people stay in programs before moving into housing, shifting to rapid re-housing strategies, or providing permanent housing.
