SAMHSA’s Homeless and Housing Resource Network (HHRN) is pleased to announce the upcoming webinar: Making the Transition from Homelessness to Tenancy.
The first part of this presentation will offer participants a toolbox designed to help individuals move from experiencing homelessness to living in housing. The toolbox will include a review of housing preferences, timelines, transition tools, and support tools. The second part of the webinar features the perspective of an individual with lived experience who successfully transitioned from homelessness to permanent housing.
In her over 30-year career, Ms. Curtis has worked as a practitioner, manager, educator, and consultant, always focusing on helping people diagnosed with serious mental health problems to live rewarding lives in their communities.
For over a decade, she worked with the Center for Community Change through Housing and Support – the first national technical assistance and training center for supported housing. She helped establish the principles that all people should have in their lives choice, regular housing, tailored supports, and community.
Now with Advocates for Human Potential (AHP), Ms. Curtis works with initiatives focusing on permanent supportive housing, shared decision making, workforce development, and promoting recovery principles as everyday practices.
All her work has been informed by lived experience as a family member and person in recovery.
