Housing & Houselessness Leadership Network

Developing housing and houselessness professionals to advance innovate solutions and ignite action

The Housing & Houselessness Leadership Network (HHLN) provides houselessness service providers and housing professionals with the leadership skills and a cross-sectoral network to advance their capacity to ignite action and impact within their organizations and across the region. Become an agent of change on housing and houselessness in Los Angeles County!

Participants expand their capacity from peer learning,  experienced leadership, DEIB, and human centered-design facilitators, and the broader Coro and regional community through Coro’s unique blend of experiential and immersive programming.

Coro’s programs deliver deep impact (see more in the “Program Impact & Testimonials” tab above and in the Program Benefits Guide) at a highly subsidized professional development rate. The housing and houselessness work environment and the challenges your team members face in it are complex. Investing in your team by expanding their skills, network, and knowledge further builds your capacity to deliver on your organization’s mission. 

Supporting team members, either financially and/or with the time and space to participate fully in HHLN, yields strong organizational benefits by:

  • Increasing the skills of employees in critical positions that can be incorporated departmentally and instilled in their direct reports.

  • Demonstrating your commitment to the employee, increasing their feeling of engagement, which often leads to higher productivity, loyalty, and retention; and

  • Motivating all employees by signaling that leadership and a commitment to their work is rewarded by the organization.

Connect with Coro to discuss an organizational partnership and nominate a member of your team for HHLN.

“In a time when professional development is critical to demonstrate organizational commitment to staff, Downtown Women’s Center (DWC) is ever reliant on the amazing training opportunities made possible through Coro programs.

We have first-hand seen an advancement in our mission because of the deeper network, civic engagement, and personal and professional skills building that come with joining the Coro community. Staff who have completed Coro programs demonstrate greater adaptive leadership skills at DWC, a timelessly important quality, but one that converging health and social pandemics demands of our current workforce today more than ever.”
