HUD - Solving for Homelessness among Older Adults, People with Disabilities, and Other Populations: An HSRC Case Study
Homelessness for individuals is solvable when systems that support housing, health, and community living work together to address housing instability. This Housing and Services Resource Center (HSRC) webinar features a model collaboration in a county with high rates of homelessness. Together, the regional task force on homelessness (which serves as the Continuum of Care (CoC)), the county government division on aging and independence services and divisions on health, and other community-based organizations developed a coordinated approach to reducing homelessness among a population that each had been separately serving.
Participants will learn, and can ask questions, about:
Steps that these local partners took to begin and sustain their partnership — even through challenging times
Replicable strategies to create bridges across systems so individuals can have both housing without precondition and access to self-directed or person-centered comprehensive services that they choose
Improvements in housing stability made possible by leveraging each sector’s strengths and expertise
The webinar also includes a roadmap on the initial four aspects of planning cross-sector solutions to housing and homelessness. Participants will be able to ask questions toward the end of the webinar.
Registrants will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the webinar. The webinar will include real-time captioning and ASL interpreting. Those who register by 9:00 AM EDT on April 18, 2023 will receive a Zoom reminder email that contains links to the slides, accessibility tips, and other handouts.
