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

Co-Sponsored Webinar: Examining Intersections of LGBTQ Youth, Housing & Healthcare During COVID-19

Tuesday, October 13, 2020 | 2pm ET / 1pm CT / 12pm MT / 11am PT

Funders Together to End Homelessness is excited to partner with Funders Concerned About AIDS, Funders for LBGTQ Issues, and featuring Point Source Youth and ViiV Healthcare on this webinar.
More than 3.5 million young adults in the U.S. experience homelessness or housing instability each year. This population – including LGBTQ and/or HIV positive young adults experiencing homelessness, as well as Black and Brown young adults experiencing homelessness – is also disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. “Shelter in place” is simply not an option for people who do not have stable housing, further exposing the inequity and relationship between housing and healthcare.

Grounded in the belief that “housing is healthcare,” this webinar will explore solutions to end youth homelessness that will help support young people living with, and at risk for, HIV and COVID-19.

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.
