A national network of funders supporting strategic, innovative, and effective solutions to homelessness

Webinar: Engaging Law Enforcement as a Key Partner in Ending Homelessness

December 6, 2018 | 1pm EST | 12pm CST | 11am MST | 10am PST

In August 2018, the US Interagency Council on Homelessness and the Council of State Governments Justice Center held a Convening on Law Enforcement and Homeless Services Partnerships in Ending Homelessness. During this webinar, we will examine promising practices among law enforcement and homeless service sector partners discussed at the convening, highlight four distinct roles law enforcement has in promoting public safety at the intersection of homelessness, and address challenges that exist in strengthening and maintaining effective partnerships. We will review next steps on actions law enforcement, communities, federal partners, and funders can take to address and ultimately end homelessness.

Please note: This webinar is only open to members of Funders Together, private funders, United Ways, and philanthropy-serving organizations. If you have questions about participating, please contact Stephanie Chan, Director of Membership and Programs, at stephanie@FundersTogether.org

We joined Funders Together because we believe in the power of philanthropy to play a major role in ending homelessness, and we know we have much to learn from funders across the country.

-Christine Marge, Director of Housing and Financial Stability at United Way of Greater Los Angeles

I am thankful for the local partnerships here in the Pacific Northwest that we’ve been able to create and nurture thanks to the work of Funders Together. Having so many of the right players at the table makes our conversations – and all of our efforts – all the richer and more effective.

-David Wertheimer, Deputy Director at Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

Very often a lack of jobs and money is not the cause of poverty, but the symptom. The cause may lie deeper in our failure to give our fellow citizens a fair chance to develop their own capacities, in a lack of education and training, in a lack of medical care and housing, in a lack of decent communities in which to live and bring up their children.

-President Lyndon B. Johnson, 1964 State of the Union Address

Funders Together has given me a platform to engage the other funders in my community. Our local funding community has improved greatly to support housing first models and align of resources towards ending homelessness.

-Leslie Strnisha, Vice President at Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland

Our family foundation convenes local funders and key community stakeholders around strategies to end homelessness in Houston. Funders Together members have been invaluable mentors to us in this effort, traveling to our community to share their expertise and examples of best practices from around the nation.
