Healing Starts at Home Part 2
The Corporation for Supportive Housing, the Downtown Women’s Center, and the National Alliance for Safe Housing present a special four-part webinar series:

"Healing Starts at Home: Reimagining Permanent Supportive Housing for Trauma Survivors"

PART II: Intersectionality and Racial Equity for Survivors in Permanent Supportive Housing

Historical socioeconomic disparities along race, gender, and class lines contribute to the unique barriers some communities face in accessing services and achieving personal stability and improved economic status. The disparate rates at which underrepresented groups and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) experience crime, violence, incarceration, non-communicable disease, un/underemployment, housing insecurity, and homelessness are also increasingly understood within the nexus of systemic dispossession. To build and run effective PSH for survivors of domestic violence (DV), operators must be aware of and actively incorporate knowledge of such dynamics into their service provision approach. This webinar offers key recommendations for doing so. It draws heavily on the frameworks of intersectionality, anti-racism, and cultural humility, each of which are integral to the trauma-informed approaches to service provision. Guests will gain insight into research about systemic anti-Black inequities in LA's PSH and initiatives in PSH being developed to improve the outcomes for BIPOC residents.
