During this month's meeting, we reviewed the themes we found during our conversations with members of the network. Participants were able to prioritize the questions they would be focusing on in the coming months as a group.
We held our virtual convening over two days (January 25-26). During this time, we kicked off our network with quick introductions and set the table for the work ahead. Community Solutions presented their upcoming pilot, The Health Care and Homelessness Pilot Initiative.
