This session will give an overview of the five keys to effective emergency shelter, including: using a housing-first approach, safe and appropriate diversion, immediate and low-barrier access, housing-focused services and using data to measure performance.
Attendees will get a behind-the-scenes look at the major factors that should be considered when determining which rules are the right rules for converting a shelter to a low-barrier model and will hear the answers to the toughest and most frequently asked questions about the process.
