Homeward


Last month the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) held their annual National Conference on Ending Homelessness in Washington, D.C. The staff of many Richmond homeless service providers and agencies attended the conference, with several local professionals serving as panelists at conference sessions.

Each year, Homeward sends staff members to the national conference in order to build the local, state, and national partnerships that will continue to facilitate the decrease in number of people experiencing homelessness in our region. Through our participation in the conference we come to better understand:

  • The changing nature of homelessness in other communitiesConference 37 Resizw
  • What innovative collaborations are delivering effective solutions to homelessness
  • How we can further build on the success of our homeless service programs in Richmond

Want to know more? Here's what you can do to learn:

1) Take a look at the conference agenda to understand the focus of the sessions

2) Visit NAEH’s website to see how the data-driven model of best practices in a coordinated homeless services system is supported and implemented at a national level.

3) Keep an eye on Homeward’s blog, website, and newsletter to see how the ideas we engaged with at the conference will be translated into services designed to help our neighbors experiencing homelessness overcome their crisis.
