Emergency shelters are critical to ending homelessness. Their purpose is to ensure safe, temporary shelter during times of crisis and connect people to permanent housing. But barriers often negate their effectiveness.

Join the Alliance for a new learning series designed to help those looking to improve their emergency shelter system. The series kicks-off Wednesday, April 26 at 2 p.m. ET with The Role of Emergency Shelter in a Crisis Response System, a webinar focused on how emergency shelter fits into community efforts to reduce homelessness.

Stay tuned for the full schedule of emergency shelter webinars.
