Learning Series on Gender and Health Services

Title: Supporting Providers and Centering Survivors: Rethinking Success Through Partnerships and Innovations To Support People Experiencing Homelessness


Please watch our Welcome Video here:

Futures Without Violence and The National Health Care for the Homeless Council are excited to present a Learning Collaborative (LC) addressing the intersections of gender and homelessness. This four-session LC focuses on a constellation of intersecting issues including substance use disorder, mental health, homelessness, human trafficking (HT) and interpersonal violence (IPV).

We will work together to strengthen the connections between health centers and the community partners who provide supportive services to IPV and HT survivors and build providers’ skills on providing universal education about healthy relationships. We also recognize that this work is challenging, powerful, and at times overwhelming, so we hope to build an LC community where participants feel supported as they navigate toward healing centered engagement.
