The connection between employment and homelessness is evident: homelessness is a barrier to stable employment. Without the fair opportunity for employment, the ability to find a home and stay housed dramatically decreases putting individuals and families at risk. How, as funders, can we invest in and use our influence to leverage tactics to help employ individuals experiencing homelessness?
Join us on Wednesday, August 24th at 3:30pm ET as our expert panelists discuss how funders can advance employment opportunities and engage employers in the community to build support around these efforts. The speakers will also share examples of what is working in Colorado to help individuals who experience barriers to employment through partnerships throughout the community.

This fall, Funders Together will bring together funders from across New England to network, learn, and discuss family homelessness and the important role that economic security plays in our efforts to prevent and end homelessness in our communities. This is an exclusive opportunity for funders to connect with one another and share their lessons, challenges, and successes with peers from the region.
Local leaders from The Paul & Phyllis Fireman Charitable Foundation and the Melville Charitable Trust will share an innovative approach they’ve implemented in Massachusetts and Connecticut called Secure Jobs. Hear how they learned from each other and were able to implement an effective model.
David Wertheimer of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will also join the conversation to share what the foundation has learned in their 15+ years working on family homelessness in Washington State and what they’re doing now.
We hope you will join us to connect with local colleagues and identify ways we can work together to END homelessness.
*Lunch will be included.
