SAVE THE DATE! Foundations for Employment and Housing Initial Convening
While progress has been made, there is much to learn and do to advance the income side of the ending homelessness equation. In order to support this, Heartland Alliance and USICH are convening a cross-section of leaders to take a moment to learn and plan strategically for the future. This event will lift up what Heartland Alliance has learned since 2009 in promoting employment and quality jobs as key elements in the fight to prevent and end homelessness and specifically learnings from national efforts to support systems collaboration work with five communities nationwide through the Connections Project.
The Connections Project is a three-year project aimed at expanding systems-level innovations and partnerships in communities with the goal of increasing employment and economic opportunity for homeless jobseekers. The event will draw on the lessons learned, successes and challenges faced by these communities and will seek to engage leaders to identify future needs and directions for this work.
During this convening Funders Together to End Homelessness is excited to host a funder-only dialogue that will allow Foundations for Employment and Housing participants and other funders interested in this intersection to share their own work and begin learning together.
Preference for the limited seating at this event will be given to members of the Foundations for Employment and Housing Community of Practice. If you are interested but unable to commit to the community at this time please contact Jennifer Olney at [email protected]
