Community Feedback


The workshop was excellent. Thank you.

Tracy is a gifted facilitator, and was able to move the discussion forward when it got uncomfortable, without glossing over the roadblocks to coordinated access that the participants discussed. (roadblocks to breaking down silos, internal policies, unwillingness to share control, need to acknowledge and respect each other’s strengths and limitations.) We had an amazing turn-out, as you can see from the participants listed below. It was by invitation and we asked each agency to send a manager and a front line worker. We had 54 people. Almost everyone responded positively.

"Hi Wally,

I just wanted to say the training went well. We certainly benefited from the

gifts that each presenter had. The closing circle was emotional and full of

lots of laughs."

"As a community that only recently started to focus on Housing First, the opportunity to work with CAEH TTA has been invaluable to our organization and community.  Starting in the summer of 2016, with Housing First 101, and continuing through December with Person-Centered Planning training, we have had the good fortune of receiving a quality training experience.  Feedback has been resoundingly positive, and many of the tools that were shared, along with the tips and techniques, are being used in daily practice in organizations across the community.  We look forward to working with Wally and the team at CAEH to bring more high quality, relevant, and impactful training to our community."

"Hi Michelle

I just wanted the thank you guys for yesterday's webinar with Wally.  As a region still in its infancy with Housing First, I welcome the opportunity to learn from those more experienced!  I really loved hearing from some of the other participants who are experiencing the same difficulties that I do.  It's reassuring in a way and a great way to learn.  Really enjoy these moments of connection."

“The training we received was absolutely fabulous! Our trainers provided such a wealth of information and amazing support! It was very inspiring to spend time with them and learn from their wisdom; definitely couldn't ask for better.”

Kendra Giles, Phoenix Residential Society, Regina

"Good day,

This was the first webinar that I participated in. The trauma informed approach to Housing First was relevant to me.

 Interestingly, the items that Alberta struggles with seem similar to our challenges in Ontario….SILO approaches, complex needs, inadequate volume of social housing stock, limited supported housing solutions…

I look forward to listening in again."
