NLIHC, the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH), and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) invite advocates nationwide to register for our new webinar series on homelessness and Housing First. Join us for the second webinar in the new series, “A World without Housing First,” today (January 9) at 2:30 pm ET!
The webinar will examine what is at stake if anti-Housing First legislation is enacted. Our speakers will address what the situation for people without homes was like before Housing First and what it would mean for people experiencing homelessness and for homelessness programs if our efforts to defend Housing First are unsuccessful. Today’s webinar will feature NAEH Chief Executive Officer Ann Oliva; Incoming House Financial Services Committee Ranking Member Maxine Waters (D-CA); Incoming Senate Appropriations Vice Chair Susan Collins (R-ME); Kelly King Horne, executive director of Homeward in Richmond, Virginia; Dr. Sam Tsemberis, founder of the Housing First model and chief executive officer of the Pathways Housing First Institute; Crissy Canganelli, executive director of Shelter House in Iowa City, Iowa; Donald Whitehead, Jr., executive director of the National Coalition for the Homeless; and Steve Berg, chief policy officer at NAEH.
More than 7,000 people registered for the four-part webinar series held by NLIHC and our partners in August and September 2022. Given the tremendous interest among stakeholders and the increased risk of harmful measures to criminalize homelessness, we have decided to continue our national webinar series, with webinars being held monthly. We will share critical information about solutions to homelessness and amplify the work of advocates and people with lived expertise across the nation.
