    Being homeless means you are more vulnerable to the spread of infectious disease than people with housing. The rigours of life on the streets mean that people experiencing homelessness have compromised health and are vulnerable to the spread of infectious disease.

Courses are collections of resources grouped by topic. Some of these range from beginner basics (such as Housing First 101) to specifics in case management (such as working with youth). As the website develops and grows, we will create more self-paced courses with clear learning outcomes (much like the Systems Planning Collective Learning Modules).

    The following list of resources can work to get your organization thinking about and planning for program evaluation.
