Register for the webinar

Description:
Helping people remain stably housed plays an important role in addressing the growing numbers of people experiencing homelessness. One housing stability strategy is home accessibility. Home accessibility is multi-faceted and can be supported with home modifications, assistive technology, and changes in behavior.

Join the Housing and Services Resource Center (HSRC) to explore how cross-sector partnerships can help to sustain services and programs that support accessible and stable housing for older adults and people with disabilities.

Through this webinar, participants will:

  • Hear firsthand experiences from home accessibility partnerships in North Carolina and Tennessee.
  • Learn about two new home modification action guides for professionals and how to use them to build and sustain cross-sector partnerships.
  • Understand how to sustain those collaborative activities, including integrating them into existing organization operations.
  • Identify ways to evaluate program impact and use data to make the case for funding and expanding services.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. The webinar will include real-time captioning and ASL interpreting. If you need additional accommodations, or if you have questions, please email HSRC@acl.hhs.gov.

Launched in partnership between the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Housing and Services Resource Center (HSRC) fosters cross-sector partnerships between the organizations and systems that provide housing resources and homelessness services, health care and mental health services, independent living services, and other supportive services. The HSRC is part of an interagency initiative to streamline and expand access to affordable, accessible housing and the critical services that make community living possible.
