The largest group of people experiencing homelessness is individuals living on their own. Yet, except for smaller groups such as veterans and people who are disabled, individual adults are rarely prioritized and seldom receive housing assistance. This inaugural event will explore emerging research, innovative strategies, and proven best practices to address homelessness among this key population. The conference will explore solutions for important subpopulations, including young adults and those experiencing chronic homelessness.
To effectively respond to homelessness, communities should be able to help residents maintain or regain housing without having to enter emergency shelter. Diversion is a strategy that helps people experiencing a housing crisis quickly identify and access safe alternatives to emergency shelter.
