Two Spirit LGBTQ Policies and Practices within your Tribal Transitional Housing Program

Lenny Hayes, Tate Topa Consulting, LLC
Wednesday 3/13/19 - 12:00 pm Mountain

Our Two Spirit Lesbian, Gay, BI-sexual, Transgender (LGBTQ) communities are often overlooked when developing a tribal transitional housing program. Additionally, LGBTQ are often not addressed when it comes to policies and practices within our programs. This session will discuss how to create polices that are inclusive with regards to safety, protection, and non-discrimination of Two-Spirit/Native LGBTQ people.

Mandated Reporting

Alicia Aiken, Confidentiality Institute
Wednesday 4/3/19 - 12:00 pm Mountain


Mandated Reporting can be daunting for an Advocate to know when they are required to make a mandated report. As Transitional Housing Advocates, we will come in contact with survivors’ lives in a way that may make it necessary for us to make a mandated report. This session will discuss what mandated reporting is and what the Advocate role is in making a mandated report. It will provide direction on how to make the decision to report and whom the report should go to.
