CSH is pleased to offer its Ohio Opening New Doors Institute, a training and technical assistance workshop that will take place from late September 2015 through January 2016. The Institute is designed to assist new or experienced development teams with building winning project proposals that expand capacity for supportive housing in Ohio. This year’s Institute features a combination of in-person and self-paced E-learning modules designed to maximize time and promote experiential learning.
CSH will select 8-10 teams to participate in this training series focused on developing housing to:
- end homelessness for persons experiencing chronic homelessness
- assist persons who are prioritized for supportive housing by local Continua of Care and Mental Health and Addiction Services Boards
- house individuals with developmental disabilities who are transitioning into the community from institutional settings
This series will help teams learn how to navigate the complex process of developing housing with support services and is expected to reduce the time it takes to obtain funding for supportive housing by improving the planning and development process.
The Institute is made possible by the support received from the Ohio Housing Finance agency, Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, and the Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing.
