Our 2012 National Conference on Ending Family and Youth Homelessness kicks off tomorrow in sunny Los Angeles! We told you how to follow the conference online on Monday, but we wanted to introduce two of our guest tweeters. This year Shalom Mulkey, Chief Operating Officer, and Kate Seif, Assistant to the President, will be tweeting live from the conference about workshops, plenaries, speakers, and events, using the hashtag: #NAEH12.
Please be sure to share thoughts of your own! Use the hashtag and feel free to post your thoughts, pictures, videos, and feedback on all the Alliance networks: blog, Facebook, and Twitter. We look forward to hearing from you about your experience at this year’s National Conference on Ending Family and Youth Homelessness.
Last week we showed you an interview with Kay from our Center for Capacity Building about the new Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG) program. The Alliance has been investigating how the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program (HPRP) and other initiatives were implemented in numerous communities. We recently published a brief distilling these findings into six recommendations for implementing the new ESG program.
This week we focus on two of these recommendations, which were to prioritize rapid re-housing, and target prevention assistance to people who are most likely to become homeless.
