Yesterday morning CTAC along with AIDS Connecticut (ACT), the CT Coalition to End Homelessness, the CT Fair Housing Center, and HUD did training down in southeastern Connecticut to homeless shelter managers and some staff on how to make shelters more trans inclusive. The two hour training covers, the state and federal laws, culture competency and how to integrate the shelters. The presentation was then followed by a Q&A session.
