The Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless is excited to announce new and engaging training opportunities for 2019. Thanks to the Callahan Foundation, we have been able to expand our training portfolio this year. We are using this support to address broader needs in our community that have been identified by our members. We hope that you can take advantage of these opportunities. Let us educate ourselves and do our best to engage people living in crisis with the deepest dignity and respect.  We believe that this training line up will support our community in this endeavor.
