NLIHC, the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH), and the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP) invite advocates nationwide to register for the sixth webinar in our series on homelessness and Housing First. Join us for the webinar, “Housing First and Faith-Based Organizations,” today (May 15) at 2:30 pm ET!
The webinar will examine how faith-based organizations play a vital role in local homelessness response systems by establishing and operating rapid rehousing and permanent supportive housing programs consistent with Housing First. The panelists will discuss how the principles that serve as the foundation of Housing First – such as the belief in the dignity and autonomy of the individual person and the idea that all people deserve to have their basic needs met – align with their faith.
Today’s webinar will feature Dr. Bambie Hayes-Brown, president and CEO of Georgia Advancing Communities Together, and an NLIHC board member; recorded remarks from Representative Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO), ranking member of the U.S. House of Representatives’ Committee on Financial Services’ Subcommittee on Housing and Insurance; Kim Boudreaux, chief executive officer of Catholic Charities of Acadiana in Louisiana; Jesse Rabinowitz, senior manager for policy and advocacy at Miriam’s Kitchen in Washington, D.C.; Bonnie Harper, HUD grant housing specialist at Partners Health Management in North Carolina; and Steve Berg, chief policy officer at NAEH.
Please note that this webinar is not a training, and webinar attendees will not receive a certificate of completion.
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.
