Communities across the country are making progress and a positive impact on ending homelessness through partnership and collaboration. No one sector can do it alone, but through strategic public-private partnerships and a strong focus on racial equity and systems change, we can move the needle on ending homelessness in our communities.
Philanthropy, alongside its public sector partners, can play an important role to help center the voices of our neighbors experiencing homelessness in improving the systems that support them, and can help build political and public will to drive policy changes. These partnerships are crucial for our region, where high housing costs that drive homelessness and housing instability are also leading to the resegregation of our communities and higher concentrations of poverty.
This briefing is the second in a series that NCG is hosting in partnership with Funders Together to End Homelessness. In our first briefing, participants heard from leaders who are spearheading multi-faceted efforts in housing across the Bay Area. In this session, we will delve into the distinct role philanthropy plays in supporting systems change to prevent and end homelessness.
Join us to:
- Learn how funders across the country are facilitating and supporting systemic change to advance efforts to end homelessness
- Discuss how funders can collaborate across systems to drive policy change and build both political and public will
- Discuss the role philanthropy can play to support these efforts. This event is a partnership between Funders Together and Northern California Grantmakers
- Amanda Misiko Andere, Chief Executive Officer, Funders Together to End Homelessness
