Housing People Who Use Drugs (PWUDs) Webinar Series

Last Updated

The Housing People Who Use Drugs (PWUDs) Webinar Series, a five-part 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 will reconvene on the first Wednesday of every month from 3:00 to 4:00 PM EST. 

The first webinar, “Cultural Competence for Housing PWUD,” focused on cultural humility and awareness when serving PWUD experiencing homelessness and housing instability, particularly on clientele who are Black, Indigenous, and other people of color. We were joined by Jessica Martinez from HIPS in Washington, DC.
