West Virginia | Wednesday, August 26 | 10:00 - 11:15 ET
In May, Philanthropy West Virginia and Funders Together to End Homelessness partnered on a webinar to talk about the root causes of homelessness and solutions that work to end homelessness. Now that groundwork has been laid, join us on August 26 for the second webinar in this two-part series for grantmakers in West Virginia.
People do not lead single-issue lives, and so our approaches to preventing and ending homelessness cannot be single-issue solutions. Housing stability is tied to successful outcomes in every other system, whether that’s employment, education, or health. In this webinar, we’ll explore how homelessness intersects with other systems and what funders are doing at these intersections.
By the end of this webinar, we hope participants will know:
- How housing stability impacts the outcomes of systems such as employment, education, and health,
- What communities and funders are doing to work across these systems, and
- What additional resources are available for funders wanting to gain deeper knowledge about how homelessness intersects the issue areas they care about
- Stephanie Chan, Director of Membership and Programs, Funders Together to End Homelessness
- Todd Shenk, Senior Program Officer, Rasmuson Foundation
- Dick Mandsager, Senior Fellow, Rasmuson Foundation
