Successful local systems change often requires identifying a champion who can bring key partners together, message effectively, and impact public sentiment. The same is true at the state and national levels. This workshop will cover ways to identify and cultivate champions of ending homelessness at all levels of government to ensure we continue to implement efficient and effective systems and have the resources necessary to do so.
