Announcing MSH-TA’s Webinar Series on Key Issues and Promising Practices

 

Mending the Sacred Hoop TA Project is pleased to announce our “Key Issues and Promising Practices” Webinar Series! From April-November 2021, MSH-TA will be offering webinar trainings on a variety of topics addressing violence against women in Native communities, including: Privacy and Confidentiality, Transitional Housing, Enforcing Tribal Protection Orders, and more.

Please join us in June for:

Housing First – A Model for Transitional Housing: Wednesday, June 16, 2021 | 1:00 pm CDT. The Housing First model has been shown to be a highly effective approach to achieving permanent housing for chronically homeless individuals with serious mental illness and chemical dependency. The Housing First model is based on the presumption that helping people obtain stable housing before addressing other concerns makes dealing with these other issues easier, and the evidence has strongly supported this claim. There are many components of the model that lends itself toward achieving similar goals for homeless domestic violence survivors, survivors of sexual assault, and their children. Webinar participants will explore what housing first is and how it can serve as a strong model to providing transitional housing for victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking within their tribe. Presented by Victoria Ybanez, MPA, Executive Director of Red Wind Consulting, Inc.
