A series of outreach forums are being held with diverse groups to shape regional strategies to address homelessness. A forum was held with nonprofit leadership in January. Additional forums are planned with housing developers, business leaders, educators, and the faith community. These forums
are intended specifically for the staff of nonprofit housing and service providers working directly to end homelessness. Please share this invitation with your staff and colleagues.
The increasing numbers of people experiencing homelessness and the impending wave of people who may become homeless when the moratorium ends are escalating the urgency to find solutions. The insights and expertise of nonprofit providers valleywide are essential to understanding this crisis. As we develop regional strategies to move people from the streets to housing, we need to better understand the challenges you are facing in the field.
This forum is co-hosted by the Arizona Housing Coalition, Arizona State University (ASU) Action Nexus, Maricopa Association of Governments, Maricopa County Human Services Department, Valley of the Sun United Way, and Vitalyst Health Foundation. The information gathered at the forum will shape regional, coordinated efforts to end homelessness.
