All Home is committed to providing support in the form of training and technical assistance to organizations serving people experiencing homelessness. These learning opportunities are a response to input and requests made by local partners and reinforce local priorities and National best practices.
We believe robust professional development and a culture of accountability and practice will lead to improved outcomes for people experiencing homelessness and improved program and system performance.
- All learning opportunities will integrate Racial Equity & Housing First principles
- People of color and local experts will be included in the planning and execution of learning opportunities
- Communities of practice will be organized around learning concepts
- Training content will be relevant and applicable to homeless housing
- Learning opportunities will include classroom and web-based formats
- Learning opportunities will be refined and/or added based on participant and community feedback

All Home is making $100,000 available to offer individualized technical assistance to local nonprofits providing housing and services to people experiencing homelessness. All Home invites technical assistance providers, consulting firms and independent consultants to submit a Letter of Interest to be included in a pool of technical assistance providers from which eligible nonprofits can select.
We are actively seeking women, LGBTQ and minority-led businesses and consultants for this pool, and strongly encourage women, LGBTQ and minority-led businesses to apply.
**Please note the original deadline has past. However, due to some unexpected technical difficulties resulting from website updates during the soliciation period and ongoing reflection of our own racial equity practices, we are extending the solicitation period through August 31. Doing so will allow us to more actively advertise and solicit TA providers from women, LGBTQ and minority-led firms/businesses. All Home will continue to move forward with the timeline in the original LOI (activating the pool in mid-August), but will also roll in new TA providers as LOIs are received. Please direct questions and LOIs per the instructions in the below announcement to Triina Van at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For nonprofits serving people experiencing homelessness (in King County): More information will be made available in the coming weeks. If you are interested in learning more about what resources may be available, please contact Triina Van.
