Applications for Cohort #10 are closed

The Leadership Academy for Homeless Services was created to provide professional development to case managers and share best practices to promote excellence and consistency in the quality of care provided to our homeless neighbors. Join us in this 10-week program to learn, network, and have meaningful conversation about experiences in the field.

Upon successful completion of the Leadership Academy, participants will receive CEU’s, a Certificate of Completion, and graduate with the opportunity to participate in future alumni events.

This curriculum was designed for new case managers looking to connect with others, increase knowledge and develop essential skills needed to work with the diverse population we serve.  All case managers looking to apply must complete the Boot Camp training as a prerequisite.
