Funders Together is organizing multiple ways for our members to connect and share information about local responses to the impact of COVID-19 on people experiencing homelessness. In addition to regular webinars with field updates, we are organizing recurring, informal funder calls for funders to share what they’re seeing and doing and to seek support from other members.
These funder calls are active, discussion-based calls that we hope will be led and lightly facilitated by our members. Join these member calls if you want to share what is happening in your community related to supporting people experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic and hear what other funders are doing in their communities.
August 5 Agenda
Field Update: In April, the National Alliance to End Homelessness conducted a national survey of local CoCs to understand the impacts of COVID-19 and how communities have responded. We'll kick off our COVID-19 funder call on August 5 with an overview and discussion of those survey findings, how communities have been using new funding and resources, and what funders can think about as communities work to ensure the health and stability of people experiencing homelessness.
- Speaker: Joy Moses, Director of the Homelessness Research Institute at the National Alliance to End Homelessness
- Report: Community-level Responses of Homelessness Assistance Programs to COVID-19
Community Update: We'll leave time during the second half of this call for people to share updates from their community and ask for feedback and thought partnership from colleagues. We plan to orient this week's conversation around these questions:
- How is your community using CARES Act and other new resources to secure permanent housing?
- What is your foundation or organization doing related to rental assistance and eviction prevention, especially for populations that we know are disproportionately represented in eviction and homelessness data?
To sign up for this funder call, please RSVP below and Stephanie Chan, Director of Membership and Programs will send you the calendar invitation. We hope that as many people as possible will join via Zoom Meetings. We will take live notes, but these calls will not be recorded.
Member calls will take place bi-weekly on Wednesday afternoon from 3-4pm ET / 12-1pm PT until members decide otherwise.
Please note: Participation in our programming is limited to private funders, including foundations, United Ways, corporate giving programs, individual philanthropists, and philanthropy serving organizations (PSOs). You do not have to be a member of Funders Together to participate in this call. If you have questions about your eligibility to register, please contact Stephanie Chan, Director of Membership and Programs at Funders Together to End Homelessness.
