Communities typically have a variety of programs to serve families and youth experiencing homelessness. However, it can be difficult to organize homeless assistance so that people who need particular interventions are the ones who receive them. Many communities have begun using progressive engagement to overcome this challenge. This workshop will provide an overview of progressive engagement approaches and examples from communities that are employing these strategies.
