Event description

Description

The Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness invites you to the fifth annual Breakfast of Champions on Thursday, May 31.

Each year MCAH recognizes the exceptional work happening across Michigan in the work to prevent and end homelessness. This is our opportunity to celebrate the Champions who make a real difference in our communities and the lives of those experiencing homelessness.

But we don’t just celebrate – we ask “what’s next?” and we invite you to be part of this vital conversation.

Jennifer Erb-Downward, a Senior Research Associate with Poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan

This year we will be joined by Jennifer Erb-Downward, Senior Research Associate with Poverty Solutions at the University of Michigan, to discuss her recently published research on child homelessness in Michigan.


Reaching Across the Definition Divide

HUD and the Department of Education define homelessness differently but collaborating across these definitional lines can open new opportunities for meeting the needs of Michigan’s homeless children, youth and families. Jennifer Erb-Downward, Senior Research Associate at Poverty Solutions will discuss how school data can help local communities understand the full extent of housing instability and homelessness. She will also share findings on why homelessness is not only a housing issue, but also a critical education issue in the state of Michigan.

We hope you will join us for this opportunity to connect with others passionate about ending homelessness in Michigan.
