ONE-DAY HOUSING JUSTICE INSTITUTE
One-Day Housing Justice Institutes equip congregations, community leaders, and neighbors with practical tools needed to end homelessness and to stabilize the cost of housing through education, advocacy and organizing.
The day provides an overview of our own housing stories, God’s story, the story of affordable housing in the US for the past 100 years — factors that have caused today’s crisis and what we have learned that works.
We explore topics tailored to your church and city, such as:
various models of how congregations are building affordable housing
the development process
best practices to end homelessness
a practical theology of land use
provide an overview of policies
what it takes to mobilize congregations to do housing justice.

Shook’s One-Day Workshop is exactly what faith leaders in Broomfield, Colorado, needed in our efforts to advocate for and actually create affordable housing solutions in our community. Her grasp on housing policy and history in the US informed us for working with government entities. Jill’s presentation of biblical basis for housing justice fueled us for engaging our congregations and working on behalf of people who work, worship and play in Broomfield that aren’t also able to live in our community. Her tenacity to continue this uphill work inspires us to do the same
