Ending Family Homelessness

May 20, 2019 - 8:30 am to 11:30 am
The Lyceum
227 Lawrence Street, Hartford, CT

As the housing wage continues to rise in our state and the nation, many low-income families that are working to make ends meet are at risk of falling into homelessness. Many of these families are people of color seeking housing assistance through the homeless response system. Even if families do not become literally homeless, the lack of affordable housing has negative consequences for households and communities.

To create an effective system, we need to strategically target interventions that prevent families from becoming homeless and address systemic housing inequities, practices, and their effect on communities of color. This IForum will explore the interconnection between racial equity and homelessness and emerging prevention strategies to address family homelessness.

Facilitated conversation around racial equity and family homelessness by:

  • Catherine Burton, Harriet Beecher Stowe Center and her team

Featured presentation by:

  • Beth Shinn, Vanderbilt University
