ToolkitExpanding Peer Support Roles in Homeless Services Delivery: A Toolkit for Service Providers
Published: August 17, 2023
Peer support is a fast-growing occupation in the behavioral health sector and homeless service organizations can also benefit from its value. Using trained peer workers to provide additional services and support has become popular and effective in improving overall housing and treatment outcomes. This is especially true when a peer is on a unified team and paired with a supportive, collaborative clinician in a recovery-oriented, trauma-informed organization. This toolkit guides organizations looking to strengthen peers' integration into their workforce.
Sections of the toolkit include:
Understanding Peer Support
Orienting Organizations toward Recovery
Internal Opportunities When Establishing New Peer Roles in Homeless Services
