The Domestic Violence and Housing Technical Assistance Consortium (DVHTAC) is hosting a webinar on Thursday, November 19, 2020 from 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM EST focusing on using alternative tools for prioritizing vulnerabilities and housing assistance.
DVHTAC is a technical assistance consortium funded by DOJ’s Office of Violence Against Women and Office of Victims of Crime, HHS’s Family Violence Prevention Services Program and HUD’s Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS). DVHTAC is focused on the intersection of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, stalking and homelessness.
You will hear from authors in the DVHTAC Special Series on Coordinated Entry, Cris Sullivan, PhD, and Kris Billhardt, who make the case for bold changes that aim to benefit not only survivors but anyone touched by the trauma of housing insecurity. This webinar will spotlight three communities that are in the process of transforming their systems. Presenters will explore how their communities have navigated through these change processes and share critical discussions, key decision points, and their community’s motivations for risk-taking and innovation. Finally, attendees will hear from SNAPS representatives who will share key principles for including trauma-informed approaches and centering people with lived experiences in transforming coordinated entry systems.
