Our Services

Housing First University (HFU) offers the people and organizations we work with a spectrum of services to meet their needs – from targeted training to support evidence-based practice, to intensive consulting engagements that address adaptive challenges. We work with our clients to tailor solutions that are responsive to their unique needs across three service offerings: training, technical assistance, and consulting.
HFU specializes in helping our clients to learn and implement best practices for working with individuals struggling with chronic homelessness, serious and persistent mental illness, substance use, and other disabilities. Our trainers and consultants can assist your agency with identifying appropriate opportunities for learning and growth, while also augmenting current strengths to build capacity and create long-term systematic change. Our staff is comprised of experienced clinicians who will guide you through the practical application of theory and assist you in exploring solutions to the varied and sometimes unpredictable issues faced in every day social service settings.

“Thank you for your hosting our research team and guide at your organization. I was glad to see you and to discuss homelessness. It inspired bravery, power, and energy that I will bring back to my work. I admire your activities, approach, and attitude. I wish we had more time. Personally, I believe the Housing First approach is correct to ensure dignity to the human lives impacted by homelessness. Again, thank you for your kindness and support.” – Researchers/site visitors from Nagoya, Japan
