Advocacy 101: How to Engage your Elected Officials on Housing Solutions

Have you ever wanted to influence policy in your day-to-day work, but didn’t know where to get started? Join this workshop and learn how you can use advocacy to provide information to our elected officials and organize support for safe, decent, deeply affordable, and accessible housing. As the 118th Congress begins its work, now is a critical time as advocates to engage with your elected officials and hold them accountable for addressing America’s housing crisis. In this workshop, you will learn about NLIHC’s public policy priorities and how to utilize advocacy tools such as advocacy meetings (in-person and virtual), social and traditional media, letters, events, and so much more!

Getting Involved 101: the Texas Legislature

With Texas legislative sessions happening only once every two years, getting involved can make a big impact. THN wants you to feel informed and empowered to make a difference through state policy. Join us as we explore how to get and stay active during the current Texas legislative session.

Innovating Outreach: A New Relational Model for Case Management

Gaining the trust of people experiencing homelessness can be a challenge. Yet, research tells us it’s the relationship that creates change for our clients. Using the psychology of trust, learn how to leverage client-case manager relationships to connect people with resources they need. Resources discussed will focus on system diversion.

This webinar will address several critical components: 1) redefinition of diversion; 2) education on the use of creative problem-solving in diversion practices; 3) the unique psychology of trust within the homeless population and how it impacts the client-case manager alliance.
