Tribal Transitional Housing Conference
Red Wind is hosting a two and a half day conference for Tribal Transitional Housing Programs.

Date: December 6-8, 2017
Location:
Denver Sheraton Downtown Hotel, Denver, Colorado

Who: This conference will serve Tribal Advocates and Program Managers/Coordinators working in Transitional Housing, Tribal Advocates and Program Managers/Coordinators wanting to develop Transitional Housing, and Tribal Transitional Housing supporting community practitioners.

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 women 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 a woman coming in to the program, we want to think about her as our relative. We want to offer safety, make her comfortable, make sure she has breathing room to think about what is happening, to think about her next steps and to think about her life.

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.
