Wednesday Housing Institute

9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Equal Access & Cultural Humility The Equal Access Rule, which was expanded in 2016, ensures that HUD’s housing and shelter programs are open to all eligible individuals and families regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status. In this full day institute, we will build on common understanding of the LGBTQ community and invite participants to engage in shaping the culture of more inclusive organizations through everyday interactions.
Problem Solving: A Conflict Resolution Approach to Homelessness Prevention Problem Solving is a client-centered, conflict resolution approach that helps clients identify their own strengths and resources and connects them to resources to empower them to create their own paths out of homelessness. This institute delves into the Problem Solving philosophy and provides interactive activities to build effective techniques.
Leadership Institute: Hiring, Retention, and Supervision Retaining and cultivating high quality staff is an ongoing challenge for social services agencies. This institute for program managers and organization leadership will dig into best practices in staff recruitment, retention, and supervision.
Racial Equity & Homelessness 101 Racial minorities make up a majority of Ohio’s homeless system. Join COHHIO staff for a full day session as they introduce basic concepts of racism and racial equity, and explore historical context that explain modern day inequities in the homeless system. We invite you to examine your own internal, interpersonal, and societal experiences to build the skills needed to address inequities in your agency and community.
