Event description

Description

Speakers include Laura Zeilinger and Kristy Greenwalt. Hosted by Ray Suarez

Homelessness is a solvable issue, and DC is united in its vision to prevent it, or make the experience rare, brief, and non-recurring. Where are we on the path to making this a reality?

Friendship Place has invited regional and national experts to discuss Homeward DC, a strategic partnership (between the DC government, nonprofits providers, advocates, persons experiencing homelessness, business partners, and the philanthropic community) to end homelessness in the area by 2020.

Join us to learn about the progress, barriers, and concrete plans for making Homeward DC a success.
