Our workshops for staff and volunteers working with individuals and families at risk or experiencing homelessness leverage the knowledge and expertise of local programs and organizations as well as external facilitators.
These workshops are ideal for those who work with singles, youth, women, families and Indigenous Peoples who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness, such as:
- front-line staff;
- team leads;
- program managers; and
- senior managers.
Some of the workshops offered will be prioritized for Calgary Homeless Foundation (CHF) funded programs as they are considered core training requirements for Case Management Standards.
Workshops are free of charge thanks to the support of the Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS).
