In our first discussion of Shelter(ing) (can we make a link to the recording here?), we uncovered many important questions! Many participants were very concerned about the experience LGBTQ survivors have in communal emergency shelters, and intrigued by discussion about several programs who have changed their emergency housing and advocacy models to be more trauma sensitive, culturally competent, and, in some cases cost effective as well. In this webinar, we will explore more fully what our work can look like when we see “shelter” as a verb, instead of a noun, how programs have made these changes, and the difference it has made for them in terms of providing services to LGBTQ folks (and other groups who may be challenged by communal shelter).
