Launching March 5th: The CaseMade is coming to Massachusetts to empower your team to make the case for Supportive Housing
Your Supportive Housing team is invited to join a dedicated Strategic CaseMaking cohort. You will practice skills and strategies described in TheCaseMade founder Dr. Tiffany Manuel’s Case Made! 10 Powerful Leadership Principles that Win Hearts, Change Minds, and Grow Impact. The result will be a shared “case guide” to help providers collectively make their case for Supportive Housing, and a CaseMaking peer group to continue to work toward progress together.
- Series of six, 90-minute sessions, each beginning at 10:30AM
- Series runs bi-weekly March 5 through May 7 with a final case presented on June 25
- Sessions hosted virtually with periodic in-person gatherings by region
Launching April 9th: Gain a deeper understanding of developing and operating Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) with the PSH Learning Forum
The Massachusetts Alliance for Supportive Housing (MASH), in partnership with the Executive Office of Housing and Livable Communities (EOHLC) and the Community Economic Development Assistance Corporation (CEDAC) will host an interactive Permanent Supportive Housing Learning Forum to provide participants with a robust education on developing and delivering high-quality supportive housing with the goal of intentionally increasing the volume and diversity of supportive housing developers in the Commonwealth. This will aid in expanding the inventory of supportive housing and ending chronic and high-need homelessness for individuals, families, and young adults who are experiencing chronic and/or long-term or episodic homelessness and have a disabling condition.
The Learning Forum will start on April 9th with an in-person One-Day Kick-off Conference held in Worcester, MA, followed by a biweekly virtual training series of 1.5-2 hours each hosted over five months. A final event will be held for participants to network, share what they gleaned, and receive technical assistance.
