Making the Case for Housing

Event Dates

Location

This webinar will introduce participants to the context and data supporting a focus on people who frequently cycle between public systems (jails, emergency rooms, shelters, etc.). Participants will gain an understanding of methods for quantifying these system costs. This webinar will demonstrate a tool that can combine system and (anonymous) individual data to tell a compelling story to policymakers, tailored to each unique community.

Speakers include representatives from communities that have made the “business case” to increase investments in housing. Participants will leave this webinar with an understanding of how to begin to make the “business case” themselves.

This is the fourth session of the Thinking Outside the Box housing webinar series.
