Centralized Training Academy Course Offerings
Enrollment is now open for the new Centralized Training Academy cohorts for direct-service and supervisory staff in the homeless services sector!
Homeless Health Care Los Angeles (HHCLA) is excited to announce its participation in LAHSA’s Centralized Training Academy, an initiative to train entry-level, mid-level and supervisory staff in the homeless services sector. This initiative is truly unique as there are very few training programs in Los Angeles County that cater specifically to staff in homeless services and no training programs that offer a sequential, three-tiered curriculum designed for staff of all levels within the sector. This initiative offers the added benefit of taking a field-based approach to training, wherein HHCLA trainers travel to all 8 Service Planning Areas in LA county to educate homeless services staff on topics, resources, evidence-based practices and care coordination relevant to the homeless residents of their communities.
This training initiative consists of the following three curricula:
- Curriculum I – Care Coordination and Systems Navigation
(intended for entry-level staff with less than 6 months experience in the field)
- Curriculum II – Applied Care Coordination and Systems Navigation
(intended for mid-level staff with at least 6 months experience in the field)
- Curriculum III – Supervisory Training for Homeless Services
(intended for supervisory staff in homeless services)
Each of these new course offerings is free of charge! Registration is now open directly through LAHSA’s website. Please click the link below to register for all three curricula.
Case Management Training
This 10-module, in-depth program is for case managers and housing navigators that are new, relatively new, need to learn new techniques and approaches, or are case managers in Dept. of Health Services’ Housing for Health program. Each module includes self-directed learning and one in-person session each month. The training includes core functions, effective practices, data and documentation, standards of excellence, housing, benefits acquisition, mental and physical health, substance abuse, thriving in community and other topics needed for effective case management. Trainers are leaders from homeless services agencies across Los Angeles County. Cohorts are limited to 25 participants so that there is plenty of opportunity for participant practice of new skills.
