Supporting Homeless Families Training

  • 1.  Supporting Homeless Families Training

    HI everyone!  I'm planning on creating a training series on the topic of supporting families experiencing homelessness through using trauma-informed care.  I have found a lot of great information online on this topic, including modules from Head Start/ECLKC.  I'm wondering if anyone has done a training on this topic that you'd be willing to share with me.  Beyond this specific topic, a training session on ACEs or using trauma-informed care with children would also be beneficial to review. I'd be more than happy to give acknowledgment to any information that is used and referenced in a training.Thank you for considering sharing resources!

    You might check out the Child Witness to Violence Program. They have a link to a resource page.
    I just took a training from them yesterday and they used these resources for some of their PowerPoint slides:
