-
Washington, D.C.

On April 6, 2022, NASTAD's Drug User Health team hosted "Going It Alone: Program Models for Housing PWUD," the fourth webinar in NASTAD's five-part webinar series, "Housing People Who Use Drugs (PWUDs)." In this webinar, we discussed various housing models for harm reduction programs. This topic included housing models with low-to-high resources and examples of harm reduction program-operated housing for people who use drugs. We were joined by Natanya Robinowitz from Charm City Care Connection in Baltimore, Maryland, and Kate Perch and Dale Tippet from Prevention Point Philadelphia, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The Housing People Who Use Drugs (PWUDs) Webinar Series focuses on the complexities and considerations of providing housing services for people who are in active drug use and experiencing housing instability. The webinar topics include cultural competence when housing people who use drugs (PWUD), program models for housing PWUD, federal funding for housing, and Section 8 barriers when working with PWUD involved in the criminal legal system. Each webinar includes speakers from harm reduction organizations and other service agencies working with PWUD from across the country.

The webinar series began on January 5, 2022, and reconvened on the first Wednesday of every month from 3:00 to 4:00 PM ET through May 4, 2022. All recordings from this webinar series can be found on NASTAD’s "Housing People Who Use Drugs" resource page
