Full program description
In response to a request to assist homeless service providers, community health workers, and others to support people experiencing homeless and residing in hotel/motel and non-congregate settings, the National Alliance to End Homelessness and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council have developed the COVID-19 Learning Series. The Learning Series is an online course curriculum designed to provide training and materials to aid in community responses to COVID-19 among people experiencing homelessness, and can aid in CoC homeless response.
The COVID-19 Learning Series offers training and support to new and existing staff, particularly staff to hotel/motels settings, in their efforts to:
- keep both themselves and those they serve safe from acquiring and transmitting the disease, and
- rapidly re-house and connect individuals experiencing homelessness with the care and services they need.
Courses in the Learning Series include:
- COVID-19 Overview and Guidance for Homeless Service Providers
- Understanding Homelessness: The Basics
- Cultural Humility
- Harm Reduction: Preparing People for Change
- Trauma-Informed Care for People Experiencing Homelessness
- Trauma-Informed Supervision
- An Introduction to Case Management in the COVID-19 Era Homeless Services Sector
These COVID-19 Learning Series courses are available free of charge for the first 2,500 users, courtesy of the Kaiser Permanente National Community Benefit Fund at the East Bay Community Foundation. Once 2,500 spaces have been filled, these courses will remain available at a fee.
