All Staff Trainings 

The Office of Community and Economic Development (OCED), in collaboration with community partners, offers trainings for Washtenaw County’s Continuum of Care (CoC). These are for providers who receive funding through the CoC, agency staff, community members, and advocates. These trainings are offered twice a year.
