CSH recently facilitated a training as part of the Oregon Supportive Housing Institute where over 60 attendees learned about services in supportive housing. The Institute is comprised of teams from across the state of which half are from the Tri-County Region of Clackamas, Multnomah and Portland Counties.
One segment of the training centered on employment opportunities for people living in supportive housing. The primary focus was supported employment, or individualized placement and support (IPS), a proven model for employing people with special needs. The training, sponsored by Bank of America Foundation, was well received with participants providing creative ideas for supportive employment through social enterprise, among other topics. CSH is grateful for the support of our funders like Bank of America, helping us to build capacity in the field of supportive housing across the country.
