Best Practices A practical newsletter for people ending homelessness.
Researching an End to Homelessness: Election Year Policy Ideas – International Perspectives Thursday, October 15, 10:00 am ET Homelessness exists in countries around the world, and nations benefit when we share information with one another. In recent years, Finland's the Y-Foundation and the U.K.'s Centre for Homeless Impact both solicited research-based policy ideas from a collection of international experts. During this webinar, they will share what they learned and offer insights from their countries' efforts to end homelessness.
Effective diversion has never been more important than during the coronavirus pandemic.
This webinar will provide an overview of diversion, the best diversion practices, and how communities are implementing diversion to ensure that new federal COVID-19 homelessness resources are most effectively and efficiently targeted.
