Learning Collaborative: Rapid Rehousing Summit
This 1.5 day summit will cover the critical components of high-performing rapid rehousing programs and lead into a discussion around defining written standards for regional RRH programs (funded by ESG, CoC, and other sources). These written standards should help the region establish expectations on the operations of RRH projects, ensure the system is transparent to users and operators of RRH, and establish a minimum set of standards and expectations in terms of the quality expected of RRH projects.
Seating is limited and CoC/ESG funded agencies will be given priority. Please limit RSVPs to 3 participants per agency.
The summit schedule:
October 10th from 1-5pm: Mile High United Way, 711 Park Avenue West, Denver, CO 80205, Brad Busse Board Room from 1-5pm
October 11th from 9am-5pm: Volunteers of America/Veteran Service Center, 1247 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, CO 80204 from 9am-4pm (lunch is on your own)
Participants are encouraged to attend both sessions.
