Shelter(ing)
Provided by: NW Network of Bi, Trans, Lesbian and Gay Survivors of Abuse

Date: May 8, 2019

Time: 5:00 am – 6:30 am ChST

The built environment of communal living DV shelter facilities and the ramifications that come from accommodating those physical structures (screening, sex-segregation, staffing demands, policing of resident behaviors in communal living etc) create profound barriers to LGBTQ access to services. This webinar will push programs to re-think traditional approaches to communal emergency shelter and offer new concepts for the physical shelter environment as well as emerging best practices for "sheltering."
