Building Dreams for Tomorrow:
Creating Safe Space for Our Relatives Tribal Transitional Housing Conference
Albuquerque Marriott, Albuquerque, NM
May 21 - 23, 2019
This conference will help you expand your understanding of transitional housing, how to respond to a range of issues facing victims and survivors in their lives and support you in building the web of resources to enhance your tribal transitional housing program.
Victims and survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, dating violence, and trafficking are on a long journey as they navigate the web of safety needs, trauma, life changing events, resources and system responders. Tribal Transitional Housing is one of our strongest resources for making a difference in the lives of survivors who have lived with violence. It provides us a longer period of time while also offering a more comprehensive range of services and supports to help them get solid on their feet. As tribal advocates working with survivors coming in to the program, we want to think about them as our relative. We want to offer safety, make them comfortable, make sure they have breathing room to think about what is happening, to think about their next steps and to think about their life. A time to dream about their futures and take steps toward making it happen.
