WEBINAR

ENGAGING RESIDENTS IN VOLUNTARY SERVICES

The biggest challenge that most providers express about working with a voluntary services model is engaging tenants in non-mandatory services. In this session, attendees will learn about tips and strategies to develop relationships between tenants and supportive service providers through a cultural competency framework. This session will define how to use an assertive engagement approach and will also provide a space for attendees to share observations and examples from their work.
