Opening Doors Together: Strategies for Integrating Education and Housing Services

 

USICH and the Departments of Education (ED) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) discuss how HUD Continuum of Care (CoC) providers and educators, school social workers, and school homeless liaisons can build relationships and link educational support services and homeless services for youth and families experiencing homelessness.

 

Policy experts from ED and HUD discuss why collaboration between CoCs and local school systems is important and how to implement new strategies for building relationships around targeted activities that advance the goal to prevent and end youth and family homelessness by 2020.

On this webinar you’ll learn more about the CoC program and the Education for Homeless Children and Youth (EHCY) program and how these programs can be better coordinated to improve housing stability and educational outcomes for youth and families. You’ll also hear how homeless service providers and educators in Houston, Texas collaborated to conduct HUD’s Point-in-Time (PIT) and the challenges and benefits they experienced.
