Professional Development & Coaching

All of our knowledge doesn’t count for much if we don’t share it with others. That’s why we excel at training and coaching. A trainer that understands adult learning knows that any good training combines many different approaches. Our training philosophy is based on three principles: 1. Training should be pragmatic for what you do, 2. Training should be grounded in theory and practice, and 3. Training should be both education and entertaining. Over the years we have developed training programs that build essential skills.

De Jong heads OrgCode and champions the “housing-first model,” which is something of a buzzword nowadays. De Jong helped run the first ever “housing first” program years back. The idea is to get people in permanent housing and then provide the services needed to keep them there. DeJong told an audience of service providers, real estate developers and homeless individuals that regions can end chronic homelessness. The way, he said, is to […]

Leadership Academy on Ending Homelessness

Leadership Academy on Ending Homelessness AKA #campiain   Stonewall Resort, West Virginia   October 25-27, 2016     In 2015, a historic gathering occurred at Stonewall Resort in West Virginia. 200 leaders in ending homelessness came together from Canada and the United States to build a network with other leaders that share the same passion, and learn new leadership tools and strategies.
