2020 Outreach Academy: Rebuilding Connections One Person at a Time
(from event page) The Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) is sponsoring a four-day, virtual- format Outreach Academy for homeless outreach workers, September 22-23 and 29-30. The training will be provided using Zoom.
The Outreach Academy is a 4 day comprehensive program that builds upon each session, rather than separate stand-alone classes. Each day will offer different topics that will be presented from 9am to 2pm PDT.
The Outreach Academy is for direct service providers who conduct outreach to individuals who are experiencing homelessness and also living with a mental health condition, Substance Use Disorder (SUD), or Co-occurring disorder.
This training will help attendees to gain the resources and knowledge they need to :
- Safely and successfully conduct outreach to individuals experiencing homelessness
- Build knowledge and skills for those supervising individuals who take part in this work and increase staff retention.
Training will be provided by nationally recognized staff of the CSH (Corporation for Supportive Housing), AHP (Advocates for Human Potential), and local subject matter experts. This virtual event will be managed through the Center for Continuing Education at the University of Washington.
Note: fee applies; scholarships available (apply by August 31)
