Listen live to this webinar featuring two CoC grantees discussing how they have forged community-wide linkages that help assure access and continuity of housing, needed healthcare and support services, and employment opportunities for people experiencing housing instability, homelessness and chronic homelessness.
Panelists include: Roula K. Sweis, M.A., Psy.D., Supervisory Program Advisor, HUD’s Office of the Assistant Secretary, Community Planning and Development; Leslie Tallyn, M.A., Chief Clinical Operations Officer, Central City Concern, Portland, OR; and Christopher Molinelli, CEO, HONOR, Middletown, NY.
Who Should Attend?
This webinar primarily targets agencies administering HUD-funded CoC and HOPWA housing and supportive services. It will be particularly relevant to administrators and program planners responsible for developing agency-specific protocols and those who participate in community-level systems planning and development.
- This webinar is also open to the following U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) grantees due to their key role in collaborating with HUD’s grantees to address the healthcare needs of people experiencing homelessness:
- Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Ryan White and Health Center grantees;
- Administration for Children and Families’ (ACF) Runaway and Homeless Youth Program grantees;
- Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Targeted Homeless and HIV Programs grantees.
Participants will learn:
- How a one-stop center in an urban setting and a multi-faceted agency serving both small city and rural communities integrate their offerings with mainstream and targeted resources to assure seamless service delivery for a wide range of eligible participants.
- Successful strategies for creating and sustaining Housing First permanent supportive housing in both single-site and scattered-site locations.
- Effective methods for forging long-term linkages between federally qualified health centers, healthcare for the homeless providers, managed care organizations and the multiple case management and housing organizations that are associated with their respective homeless continuums of care.
- The demonstrated positive impact that having staff dedicated to forging and maintaining these linkages at the client, provider and system levels is having in two very contrasting communities.
