NAEH Emergency Shelter Learning Series

“Getting Your Board on Board with Low-Barrier, Housing Focused Shelter.”

Making the shift to adopt housing first, low-barrier, and housing-focused shelter practices can be both exciting and scary, especially for your Board of Directors. Boards have many duties and responsibilities paramount among them is fundraising, advocacy, and community-building. Supporting operational practices like requiring shelter doors be open to everyone, save for a health or safety reason, dropping program requirements in exchange for services, and dedicating all staff’s time to finding housing for guests can be daunting. Listen to shelter operators who made this shift and how they educated and encouraged their Boards to adopt shelter best practices to seize opportunities for increased performance and outcomes as well as community and funder support.

The webinar will take place on December 13, 2018 from 2:00-3:00pm Eastern Time. To register visit:
