In conjunction with One Roof, CSH offers a Training Academy designed to develop housing solutions for families at the intersection of homelessness and child welfare involvement.

CSH has embarked on an ambitious movement – One Roof – elevating the visibility of families who are at the intersection of homelessness and child welfare involvement. We are helping communities develop partnerships between housing and child welfare systems to improve outcomes for vulnerable families.  Our goal is to ensure a better future for children by: breaking the cycle of intergenerational poverty and despair; promoting an improved, integrated policy and systems response for this population; replicating supportive housing tailored to their unique needs; increasing investment in housing solutions for at-risk children and their families.


Working with experts leading One Roof, CSH is in the midst of its second Training Academy intended to jump-start local efforts to integrate housing and services models like Keeping Families Together. The first training group (cohort) was accepted by CSH in October 2016 and included teams from nine communities across the nation. Teams from eighteen communities are in the second cohort of training throughout the summer of 2017. Upon completion of training, participants have:

-- An understanding of the core components of implementing a Keeping Families Together program;

-- Access to tools and resources related to supportive housing for vulnerable families involved in multiple systems;

-- The opportunity to work with CSH on a formal readiness assessment and application process for additional technical assistance.
