This half-day institute offered an inside look at how to create a rural plan, strategies that work in rural areas, and how to cultivate partnerships in rural areas.  The workshop highlighted the achievements in the first year of the National Alliance to End Homelessness’ Rural Homeless Initiative of Southeast and Central Ohio (RHISCO). This innovative venture brought together 17 rural and Appalachian counties of Ohio to collaborate on regional strategies and develop Ten Year Plans to End Homelessness. With a focus on rural themes and regional cooperation, institute speakers highlighted lessons learned during 2006 and provide insight into promoting and improving planning to end homelessness in rural communities.
