Family Connection Webinar: Tailored Interventions and Assistance
Wednesday, September 10 - from 1:00 to 2:00 PM
USICH and HUD Webinar September 10, 2014
Join USICH and HUD on September 10, 2014, for a webinar titled Family Connection: Tailored Interventions and Assistance. This is the second informational webinar in a series on building systems to end family homelessness.
Millions of extremely low-income households do not have access to affordable housing, which puts them at risk for housing instability and the types of crises that can result in homelessness. As a result, the 2013 Point-In-Time Count found 222,197 people in families-an estimated 70,960 households-experiencing homelessness on a single night in January.
To end family homelessness, community systems must be in place to connect families to interventions and assistance that are tailored to the unique needs of everyone in the household. This webinar is intended to provide communities and stakeholders with information on how to utilize a range of resources and program models - which includes rapid re-housing, permanent supportive housing, affordable housing and transitional housing-to better serve families.
Featured speakers will include:
Todd Shenk, HUD
Lindsay Knotts, USICH
Katie Kitchin, Community Alliance for the Homeless, Memphis, TN
Gwen McQueeney, Northern Virginia Family Service, Manassas, VA
