Full course description
An Introduction to Case Management in the COVID-19 Era Homeless Services Sector will provide users an understanding of how to best provide quality services to the most vulnerable among those experiencing homelessness. COVID-19 has presented a new set of challenges to moving people into housing. With several states committed to flattening the curve and bringing unsheltered individuals indoors, communities have a new set of opportunities. This course will help provide staff with the skills they need to be successful and to ensure the most vulnerable among us exit hotels and other noncongregate shelters into permanent housing. This course is intended for case managers, volunteers or others that are new to homeless case management services. The techniques and tools throughout the course are used with the adult learner in mind.
