Conference Presentation | July 23, 2013

Files: Why Should I Care about Creating a System to Serve Homeless Families and Individuals? by Barbara Poppe (PDF | 1.09 MB | 8 slides)

No one individual or provider can end homelessness. Individual programs and homeless assistance leadership must work together to create a system of service that is geared toward meeting consumer need and high performance standards. This workshop will discuss how communities can create and implement a shift toward systems thinking within the homeless assistance community.
