Office Hours with Maia Uhrich & Jeremy Galley: Housing Support
March 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
If you have questions about Housing Support, here’s an opportunity to get answers from Maia Uhrich and Jeremy Galley at DHS. Come with your questions about eligibility, income (earned and unearned), benefit amounts, program requirements, and anything else you’re wondering about.
What’s up with Office Hours?
While our standard 2 hour trainings are a meaningful way to give you information & help you grow in your role, we know this format doesn’t always work for everyone—some don’t have two hours to dedicate to a training, some want to go deeper than a typical training, some need brief 1:1 coaching/guidance.
Office Hours are meant to provide you with more immediate access to MESH trainers—less structure and lecture, more of a conversation with an expert. There is no cost for Office Hours at this time. You are invited to come for the whole hour & hear your peers’ questions being answered, or you can pop in for a time to ask a specific question which we will do our best to have time to answer.
To help Maia & Jeremy prepare for this event and our Office Hour approach, we are seeking specific questions, areas of interest/concern, scenarios, etc in advance of the event. All questions & scenarios will be anonymous. You can also ask a question day of. Please include on your registration (questions? contact Michele at email@example.com.)
