One HCH Center’s Framework for a Safe and Healthy Environment

Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
Thursday, March 8, 2018 | 2-3 p.m. CT

Join us for another session in our CME-accredited 2018 Spring Virtual Training webinar series, “Responding to Crises.”

By design, HCH organizations are committed to engaging and serving the most vulnerable populations in unconventional settings, through innovative mechanisms. As such, the work is laden with tensions: welcoming while ensuring safety, empathy with boundaries and rules, and being trauma-informed with both clients and staff. Based on the experience of Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless, Inc., this training will provide a conceptual framework for safety at HCH programs, some actionable essential elements for creating such an environment, indicators and substantiating data for measuring safety, and examples of the philosophical and values challenges for decision making around safety.
