The Framework for an Equitable Homelessness Response (Framework) will host a webinar, “Reimagining Interim Housing: Transforming Our Approaches to Sheltering People,” on Wednesday, March 8, from 3 to 4:30 pm ET. Register here to join the webinar.
Guidance and recommendations provided by people with lived experience of homelessness make clear the necessity of transforming our approaches to sheltering people with homes. Throughout 2022, Framework partners hosted focus groups of people with lived experience of homelessness and interviewed people from across the country to assess gaps in existing tools and materials. In late 2022, the Framework released two new documents based on its findings:
- “Reimagining Interim Housing: Stages and Action Areas for Transforming Approaches to Sheltering People Experiencing Homelessness” recommends new approaches to help communities improve their programs, focusing on racial justice and equity and following guidance by people with lived expertise and people in direct service roles.
- “Tools for Strengthening Current Interim Housing Programs and Services” compiles documents, guidance, and tools that can be used by people and organizations to strengthen critical elements of interim housing programs.
The upcoming webinar will feature Framework consultants Claudine Sipili, Rashema Melson, Shaundell Diaz, and Matthew Doherty and explore ideas about how communities can strengthen their current programs and services and work to transform their approaches to sheltering people experiencing homelessness.
