Advancing Racial Equity in Housing and Homeless Services Part 1: Spring 2023
A strong understanding and underpinning of equity is crucial in human service fields for service delivery, client retention, staff retention, and overall organizational health. This foundational equity course is for Continuum of Care (CoC) members, housing providers, homeless and housing service providers, community support services, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), and Public Housing Authorities (PHA) who are beginning to build foundational knowledge on equity from an anti-racist lens.
Participants in the course will learn grounding concepts, frameworks, and language in equity, centered on racial equity. We will cover topics including equity, racial equity, intersectionality, white supremacy culture, power, and cultural humility. We will also touch on the history of racism in human services. Throughout the course participants will begin the process of self-introspection on how they participate in systems and how they can be an agent and champion for equity. Participants will leave the course with a base understanding of how equity, racial equity, and anti-racism impact service delivery and organizational culture.
As a result of completing this course successfully, participants will be able to:
- Understand equity, racial equity, intersectionality, white supremacy culture, power, and cultural humility
- Understand the history of racism in human services
- Demonstrate increased self-awareness of their own participation in systems and their own power to become a change agent

Meet the Faculty:
Lisa Bahadosingh, MS, LPC, has over 15 years of experience addressing the traumas associated with systemic racism within communities that have been marginalized. She engages communities and Continuums of Care in developing and delivering strategies that advance racial equity and lead to sustainable change. She is committed to advancing racial equity and passionate about continual learning and authentic collaboration with those who are most impacted by homelessness. In the earlier half of her career, Lisa provided clinical services, designed therapeutic programs, and managed continued quality improvement processes. She led several initiatives in Connecticut that resulted in a regional coordinated entry system, improved the integration of healthcare and housing, and expanded effective interventions such as Critical Time Intervention and patient navigation paired with supportive housing. As part of that work, she facilitated partnerships between public housing authorities, community providers, and municipalities which significantly advanced Continuum of Care efforts to end chronic homelessness. In her work to end youth homelessness, Lisa is a strong advocate for identifying and addressing LGBTQ+ and racial disparities throughout the system and within her organization. Lisa received a Master's of Science in Clinical Psychology from Palo Alto University and is a Licensed Professional Counselor.
