Diversion is an approach that assists households in quickly securing temporary or permanent solutions to homelessness outside of the homeless system by supporting creative and cost-effective solutions to meet individual needs. Diversion is a short term intervention that supports households in identifying immediate, safe housing arrangements, often utilizing conflict resolution and mediation skills to reconnect people to their support systems. Diversion offers flexible, light-touch services that may be coupled with minimal financial assistance that results in a temporary or permanent housing arrangement outside of the homeless system.

Diversion Training(s) facilitated by King County’s Diversion Coaches:

Our training is provided to individuals who work directly with our neighbors experiencing homelessness. Individuals who are literally homeless are eligible for Diversion services. We strongly encourage organizations who do not traditionally receive Diversion funds to register to attend.

More dates coming soon!
