Are We Doing Enough to End Homelessness? Part III

Thursday, June 22, 2017: 3:00 PM-4:30 PM
Constitution CDE (Grand Hyatt Washington)
Mayors in cities across the nation have announced “states of emergency” over homelessness. Housing instability has hit an all-time high in some of the largest urban communities in the U.S. And, a casual walk through many areas reveals a staggering number of people experiencing homelessness. A great disconnect exists. Building on popular presentations from 2015 and 2016 HCH Conferences, this workshop will help clinicians and providers sort through the facts, figures, and media to determine critical paths to truly end homelessness. The workshop will include a moderated discussion with key thought-leaders in the homelessness field and an interactive activity.
