Co-Sponsored by: Grantmakers in Aging
Funders Together to End Homelessness and Grantmakers in Aging recently partnered to host a webinar on the unique opportunity for funders to support older adults to remain in their homes and out of the overcrowded and expensive systems that often contribute to housing instability. Speakers addressed the need to implement targeted strategies to meet the needs of older adults experiencing homelessness.
This Funders Call will allow participants to explore deeper some of the strategies that are being implemented to support older adults experiencing homelessness, as well as advocacy opportunities to better serve those aging. Participants will be placed in small groups where they will be able to dialogue with speakers working to support this vulnerable population. Speakers will provide an overview of their work and participants will be able to ask questions and dive deeper into how funders can support aging adults experiencing homelessness. This will be an interactive call that will allow participants to get to know some of the key partners working with this population.
