Education and training opportunities for resident service coordinators are typically offered through regular VRSC meetings and through conferences in Vermont, New England, and other locations. Watch this fun video about the New England Resident Services Coordinator conference that took place in Stowe May 6-8, 2015.

VRSC meetings

Meetings are a valuable tool for resident service coordinators to learn from professional experts, engage in discussions among themselves, and conduct peer supervision sessions. Meetings take place on a quarterly basis, with a winter hiatus to reduce members' having to drive in inclement weather.

The Nuts and Bolts of Housing Retention
With Michael Ohler Ed.D. & Faith Crocker of the
Burlington Housing Authority Housing Retention Team

“An ounce of prevention may actually be worth a pound of cure. It is often less expensive to help a
person or family avoid homelessness than it is to let them become homeless and then provide them with emergency shelter, other homelessness services, and help getting out of homelessness. Moreover, while people living in near-homeless situations face a wide range of basic problems and challenges, preventing them from becoming homeless can keep the existing problems from escalating and can block a host of new ones (thereby avoiding a corresponding increase in the need and demand for costly public and private assistance).” Lindblom, 1991, p.958. With this goal in mind, the Housing Retention Team will focus on sharing with you the myriad of ways this can be accomplished.

In partnership with the Agency of Human Services Field Services, The Burlington Housing Authority
offers a housing retention program that is both free and voluntary. Through strength based goal setting, intensive home visits and access to community and state assistance programs, the Burlington Housing Authority assists both housing providers and tenants, intervening before a tenant is facing eviction and before the situation becomes a crisis.
