Join us to learn about Home Forward and the YWCA's Domestic Violence Service(s) innovative partnership with trainers Sarah Berkemeier, Resident and Community Services Coordinator and Rebecca Nesbit, Rent Assistance Project Coordinator. 
This training will:

  • provide a general overview of Home Forward housing programs,
  • explore the history and current goals of Home Forward's partnership with the YWCA,
  • discuss how survivors of domestic violence with safety concerns are supported in Home Forward housing, and
  • review options that survivors have to maintain safe housing and prevent homelessness as a result of domestic violence or stalking. 

You will also learn about recent policy changes that give Home Forward residents and participants who are experiencing domestic violence (and who are in situations determined as having a high risk of lethality) the possibility of obtaining a preference to transfer between different Home Forward housing programs as an option to achieve safety.  This training is geared toward advocates working in the domestic violence, homeless, and housing systems.

Registration is required for this training.  You may register by contacting Shannon Rose a or 503-988-6537.
