Files: Working Together to End Veteran Homelessness by Kevin Morton (PDF | 948 KB | 14 slides)

One of the major goals in the Administration’s 2010 plan to end homelessness, Opening Doors, was to end homelessness among veterans in five years. The halfway point to this historic goal has been reached. This workshop will assess where we have been, where we are, and what steps we will need to take to end homelessness among veterans. The plan will be reviewed from a data-driven, strategic perspective with an emphasis on current and future benchmarks, and on how people working across the country can help get to the final goal.

The powerpoint presentations for this workshop are available for download above.
