About this event

Join us on Thursday, September 23rd at 12:00 pm for the first Chat of our 2-Part Chat series on the new Emergency Housing Vouchers you might have heard about!

As part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), the Department of Housing and Urban Development made 70,000 new housing choice vouchers available to communities across the country. These vouchers are meant to help communities address the potential increase in housing instability and homelessness as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For this Chat, we'll be going into what these vouchers are and what they mean for Orange County in terms of addressing homelessness!

Our speakers will be Maricela Rios, the Vice Chair of the Orange County Continuum of Care Board, Meena Bavan, the Director of the Los Angeles Office of Public Housing, Rufus Washington, the Director of the Los Angeles Office of Community Planning and Development and Doug Becht, Acting Director of the Office of Care Coordination at the Orange County Health Care Agency.

This is Part 1 of a 2-Part series. Sign-up for the second Chat on September 30th by clicking here.

When you register you will have the opportunity to submit questions about the topic that you would like our guest speakers to answer. We will do our best to answer as many questions as possible, but we cannot guarantee that your questions will be answered during the event.

Attendees will be emailed the Zoom participation link one hour before the session begins. Registration will close one hour before the event. If you miss the registration deadline, you can tune in to watch on our Facebook page.

We hope you can join us! -United to End Homelessness Team

About:

The United to End Homelessness initiative, empowered by United Way, is a powerful collaboration between Orange County’s top business, philanthropic, governmental, faith-based and non-profit leaders. It also depends on caring residents like you who agree that we must act now if we are to end our community’s homeless crisis. We are all working together to create long-term supportive housing to do more for those most in need.

Our Mission:

United to End Homelessness is committed to reducing homelessness in Orange County to functional zero. This means that there will be services and housing available for every individual who may need them. We complement the work of the Orange County Commission to End Homelessness and Continuum of Care Board.
