Chronic homelessness is defined as long-term or repeated homelessness often coupled with a disability, making the chronically homeless one of the most vulnerable populations needing services. Stable and permanent housing is an essential component of successful recovery for these persons. This training explores the similarities and differences between long-term homeless people and other homeless groups. Effective case management and programmatic interventions to successfully engage, assess, and house this population are offered and practiced throughout this training. Case studies are used throughout to illustrate and practice the skills taught.
At the end of the training, attendees will have a better understanding of the unique needs of the chronically homeless and strategies to offer optimal services.
