Shelter(ing)

Webinar recording available here: https://nwnetwork.adobeconnect.com/pnszuvv2bn6u/

The built environment of communal living DV shelter facilities and the ramifications that come from accommodating those physical structures (screening, sex-segregation, staffing demands, policing of resident behaviors in communal living etc) create profound barriers to LGBTQ access to services. This webinar will push programs to re-think traditional approaches to communal emergency shelter and offer new concepts for the physical shelter environment as well as emerging best practices for “sheltering’.

Presented by Margaret Hobart, the National LGBTQ Institute on IPV
