Welcome and Introductions

  • What obstacles to ending homelessness is the community facing?

The Solution

  • How has the community come together to tackle the problem of homelessness?
  • What innovative programs or partnerships do you have?
  • What outcomes do you have?
  • Provide a perspective from a client/consumer/tenant.

Specific Policy Request and Role of the Federal Government

  • Ask for something specific here. The point is to give the policy request a human face by showing the programs and people that these policies affect.
