Foundations are making investments to reshape the provision of services to families within communities.  Examples range from introducing new housing and service models to facilitating the integration of early education activities in homeless programs.  In this workshop, speakers provided examples from their own communities and discussed strategies to fully engage foundations (and win support) in the effort to end family homelessness.
