T.E.C.H.O. Training Provided to Individuals Facing Housing Challenges

The Forum's Housing Department provided two fair housing trainings through the T.E.C.H.O. Fair Housing cirriculum in the early part of this month. This training could impact thousands of people throughout Illinois by providing them with community-based housing.   

T.E.C.H.O. stands for Training and Education Creates Housing Opportunities, is a “train-the-trainer” model designed to develop community-based housing advocates capable of delivering practical housing education. The content is targeted to individuals who experience housing challenges and offers practical knowledge to aid in the acquisition and maintenance of quality housing. 

The engaging curriculum introduces best practices on major housing topics with an end goal of assisting housing seekers and providers serving the greater Latino community in alleviating challenges associated with limited housing opportunities.

The Forum provided this training to Claretian Associates’ internal staff in collaboration with the Chicago Lawyer’s Committee for Civil Rights. The Forum also provided a fair housing training to the Berwyn/Cicero community at the Berwyn Public Library with an additional Health component discussing health in the home.

The Forum is capable of providing this training to agencies and their staff or community leaders. For additional information, please contact Natalia Santillán at nsantillan@latinopolicyforum.org
