Frequently Asked Questions for Low Barrier Shelters
In 2017, the Alliance’s Center for Capacity Building launched the Emergency Shelter Learning Series — a collection of webinars, infographics, tools, and assessments — to help shelters implement effective housing-focused practices. It provides guidance for how shelters can lower barriers and gives tools to system leaders to better integrate and support shelters in their efforts to end homelessness.
More than 8,500 people viewed the webinars and many of you provided feedback through webinar Q&A, surveys, and emails you’ve sent to us with your questions and comments. We have compiled them and selected the most challenging and frequently asked questions for a team of experts to answer!
