Registration Now Open for New Emergency Shelter Courses
The Alliance has launched a new course via its Center for Learning, a comprehensive online resource of information, learning tools, and technical assistance for frontline service providers, stakeholders, and system leaders.
A five-part series on advancing the role of emergency shelter in ending homelessness will include live webcasts that provide an in-depth review of the five-key element of effective shelter, and how to begin implementing change. Along with weekly live webcasts, this course includes weekly office hours with Alliance staff, assignments, quizzes, discussion, optional reading, and supplemental resources.
