Safe Housing Partnerships: Decision Tree (Pt. 2): Putting it into Practice
In this follow-up to our August webinar, we’ll dive more deeply into the Decision Tree as an alternative tool for prioritizing vulnerabilities and housing assistance. You’ll hear from authors in the DVHTAC Special Series on Coordinated Entry, Cris Sullivan, PhD and Kris Billhardt, who make the case for bold changes that aim to benefit not only survivors, but anyone touched by the trauma of housing insecurity. This webinar will spotlight three communities who are in the process of transforming their systems – presenters will talk about how their communities have been navigating through these change processes and share critical discussions, key decision points and their community’s motivations for risk-taking and innovation. Finally, attendees will hear from representatives from the HUD Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs who will share some key principles for including trauma-informed approaches and centering people with lived experiences in transforming coordinated entry systems.
