Often the most vulnerable people experiencing homelessness, such as those living outdoors, in cars, or abandoned buildings, are disconnected from the homeless assistance system. This workshop will examine creative strategies for locating this often overlooked population and engaging them in supportive services in a way that ultimately leads to stable housing outcomes. Presenters will focus on the unique role that people who are currently experiencing or have
formerly experienced homelessness can play in this process.
