Applications for Cohort #11 are now closed.

The Leadership Academy for Homeless Services was created to provide professional development and share best practices that promote excellence and consistency in the quality of care provided to our homeless neighbors.

This curriculum was designed for managers and supervisors looking to connect with others, increase knowledge and develop essential skills to keep employees motivated, productive, and committed. Participants will focus on enhancing the skills and techniques required for effective leadership.

Join us for this 10-week program to learn how to better serve and support your staff, network, and have meaningful conversations about experiences in the field. Upon completing the Leadership Academy, participants will receive CEUs and a Certificate of Completion and the opportunity to participate in future alumni events.
