Solving for Homelessness among Older Adults, People with Disabilities, and Other Populations: An HSRC Case Study Webinar
Tuesday, April 18, 2023
3:00-4:00 pm, Eastern time
Homelessness for individuals is solvable when systems that support housing, health, and community living work together to address housing instability. This Housing and Services Resource Center (HSRC) webinar features a model collaboration in a county with high rates of homelessness. Together, the regional task force on homelessness (which serves as the Continuum of Care); the county government division on aging and independence services and divisions on health; and other community-based organizations developed a coordinated approach to reducing homelessness among a population that each had been separately serving.
Webinar participants will learn, and can ask questions, about:
- Steps that these local partners took to begin and sustain their partnership — even through challenging times.
- Replicable strategies to create bridges across systems so individuals can have both housing without precondition and access to self-directed or person-centered comprehensive services that they choose.
- Improvements in housing stability made possible by leveraging each sector’s strengths and expertise.
- The webinar also includes a roadmap on the initial four aspects of planning cross-sector solutions to housing and homelessness. The final third of the webinar is reserved for participants’ questions.
Registrants will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the webinar. The webinar will include real-time captioning and ASL interpreting. Everyone who registers by 9:00 a.m. Eastern time on April 18 will receive a Zoom reminder email that contains links to the slides, accessibility tips, and other handouts. If you need any additional accommodations, or if you have questions, please send an email to HSRC@acl.hhs.gov.
This webinar is part of an HSRC series on partnerships between systems so older adults, people with disabilities, and people experiencing homelessness can access all resources and ultimately have stable housing in the community.
Launched in partnership between the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services and Housing and Urban Development, 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.
