Fundamentals of Affordable Housing Institute

The Fundamentals of Affordable Housing Institute is a day-long educational training that will provide an overview of the affordable housing development process, including feasibility, design, construction, finance and operations. The institute is presented by experienced affordable housing professionals, including an architect, developer and financial consultants. This institute is especially useful and targeted to entry-level project managers, members of the board of directors of nonprofit developers and staff of public agencies, but all are invited to learn.


Resident Services Support Network (RSSN) Institute

Resident services provided in conjunction with affordable housing are a vital tool to help low-income individuals and families overcome barriers to success and achieve self-sufficiency. Resident services professionals play an indispensable role in changing the lives of the residents they work with every day. Resident services professionals from across the county attend this full day educational opportunity in order to grow the knowledge and skills necessary to provide a more meaningful impact in this important field.

Designed and implemented by the Resident Services Network (RSSN) in conjunction with the San Diego Housing Federation, the Resident Services Institute is an annual gathering of Resident Services professionals and providers. This day-long intensive learning event offers essential training, support, and networking opportunities around key and relevant topics related to providing programming in affordable housing communities. The conference is the culmination of a 2019 RSSN Training Series of monthly workshops providing certification for those who attend five of the eight workshops and the Institute.


Supportive Housing Learning Network (SHLN) Institute

The Supportive Housing Learning Network fits a critical unmet need for Affordable Housing Property Managers working in Supportive Housing developments for formerly homeless people with complex needs. The network brings together organizations with Supportive Housing and Affordable Housing units that share common issues, needs, and goals. By convening together to share lessons learned, best practices, and updated techniques, the Supportive Housing Learning Network trainings provide practitioners in supportive housing with the tools needed to achieve successful outcomes at their properties.

Designed and implemented by the Supportive Housing Learning Network (SHLN) in conjunction with the San Diego Housing Federation, the 2019 SHLN Institute is the first annual gathering of professionals and providers. This day-long intensive learning event offers essential training, support, and networking opportunities around key and relevant topics related to providing programming in affordable housing communities. The conference is the culmination of a 2019 SHLN Training Series of monthly workshop.
