Creating Welcoming Communities

Join MDHI and Denver’s LGBTQ commission for in-depth training focused on creating safe and welcoming spaces for all members of our community and learn how you can implement intentionally inclusive practices within your organization.

We will also discuss HUD's Equal Access and Gender Identity rules. Through this final rule, HUD ensures equal access for individuals in accordance with their gender identity in programs and shelter funding programs administered by HUD’s Office of Community Planning and Development (CPD).

Programs are encouraged to send direct service and management/executive level staff.  All are welcomed to attend and participate in this training. CoC and ESG funding agencies are especially encouraged to attend and note the HUD final rule compliance requirements.

Lunch will be provided!

Equity and Accessibility workgroup

The Equity and Accessibility working group is committed to achieving a reputation for developing progressively inclusive solutions to address the inequities and inaccessibility of our homeless crisis response system for marginalized populations. To achieve far-reaching and long standing equitable outcomes, the Equity and Accessibility working group is focused on building systemic infrastructures to circumvent the impacts of generational discriminatory housing policies that disenfranchise communities of color in the United States.

The group has a strong emphasis on the utilization of data analytics and community input to develop strategies around better inclusion and policies for increasing representation of staff to better mirror the homeless populations served in our community, address language barriers and increase access for non-native speakers of English experiencing homelessness and analyzing our systems and processes to ensure racially equitable housing outcomes.

The need for addressing equity in our homeless crisis response system demands immediate action. It is the intention of this group to develop quarterly recommendations to be reviewed by regional partners, Regional Governing Council, Community Design Team and other decision making hierarchies within the Denver metro housing and homeless provider community to be reviewed, evaluated and submitted for approval to be implemented within out coordinated entry system, OneHome.
