HO030 Counseling Solutions for Vulnerable Populations and Homelessness in Times of Crisis - Interactive Webinar Training

The COVID-19 crisis has caused an uptick in families who need housing counseling assistance. Those at a higher risk include households with minimal to no savings, limited English proficiency, older populations and many more. These same vulnerable populations are at high risk of becoming homeless. However, with proper tools, which you’ll gain in this session, housing counseling agencies can help minimize the risk and impact of current financial circumstances on these vulnerable populations. In this 90-minute webinar, you will define what constitutes a population that is susceptible to becoming homeless. You'll then identify challenges and explore services and protections available during and after the COVID-19 crisis, as well as analyze processes for effectively delivering high levels of service when counseling vulnerable populations. This includes how to establish partnerships with community agencies and navigate the proper workflow of referring clients that are identified as vulnerable or at risk.
