Homelessness and Housing Insecurity Support Worker

Many people experience homelessness or housing insecurity over the course of their lifetime, for a variety of different reasons. Often, people who experience housing insecurity may also experience mental health or substance use disorder issues, family conflict or trauma. Housing insecurity is never simple. People who will provide services related to housing insecurity need a variety of skills and sets of knowledge to be effective and appropriate.

In the Homelessness and Housing Insecurity Specialization, you will build on the knowledge you have gained in the core courses by completing three focused courses:

  • Introduction to Homelessness In Canada
  • Working in shelters and with vulnerable people
  • Crisis intervention in a shelter setting

Examples of roles in homelessness and housing insecurity sectors include crisis worker, shelter support worker, and housing coordinator.
