This peer support group aims to provide a safe space for managers and supervisors. Facilitated by a social worker who has 10+ years of middle management experience both in child welfare and in the gender-based violence field, we will reflect, share, and support one another as we claim and implement active strategies to survive and combat the vicarious trauma faced by those in this role. If you have participated in a previous Peer Support Group you may also sign up for this group as well but previous participation is not required.

In this two-hour workshop, participants will understand different cost allocation methodologies, providing organizations with the tools to undertake an analysis of full cost of programs and how to craft a “fully-loaded” budget to submit to funders and stakeholders. Finally, this session will also allow an organization to better advocate for the funding of indirect costs in grant proposals and government contract budgets.

Join us on Monday February 27 and Tuesday February 28 from 9-12 for a workshop on overcoming barriers to accessing safe housing for survivors of domestic violence. We’ll cover legal protections for survivors, including the Safe Homes Act, Consumer Fraud Act, Fair Housing Act, and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. The workshop will offer practical guidance, drafting examples, and troubleshooting common problems related to leaving unsafe housing–including best practices for terminating lease agreements, getting security deposits back, and avoiding eviction–and accessing safe housing–including applying to subsidized housing and overcoming barriers related to credit reports, criminal history, or eviction records. This workshop will be conducted by Jaclyn Zarack Koriath of The Network and Ernie Gordon and Rae Sansonetti from Legal Aid Chicago. We hope you’ll join us!

How do you sustain programs and projects during significant budgets cuts or increases? This workshop looks at how some organizations are using time-restricted grants and long-term investments to drive short-term decisions and results. Proper application of management tools will enable leadership to make tough decisions that have broad support; form strategies that allow the organization to respond quickly and effectively to outside forces; and empower the organization to take clear, courageous action.
