Homelessness among Women & Gender-Diverse People

This training will explore the causes and conditions of homelessness among women and gender-diverse people.

This training will explore the causes and conditions of homelessness among women and gender-diverse people. Women and gender-diverse people have unique experiences of homelessness that are often invisible and underestimated. Mainstream housing services are not effective in helping women and gender-diverse people transition out of homelessness. In this training, you will learn how poverty, violence and discrimination create barriers for women and gender-diverse people that prevent them from accessing services and stable housing.

This training is offered fully online in a self-paced format.
