In 2015, CHRIS 180 achieved status as a “Leader in Supporting and Serving LGBT Families and Youth” from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. This rigorous program brought us to the forefront of protecting and serving this population which often faces severe discrimination, bias and maltreatment.
Comprehensive LGBTQ cultural competency training is essential to translating policies into practice. Our Training Institute provides basic and role-specific training for our own staff, social workers, managers, supervisors and other agency administrators that have direct contact with LGBTQ youth and families. This training ensures these individuals and agencies are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to support and serve their LGBTQ clients.
