Homeless Veteran Resource Providers Summit

A group of homeless veteran service providers are organizing an event to share, learn, and educate each other on resources available in our community for homeless veterans.  We are hoping many of you will not only attend but also share your agency’s resources by providing a 15 minute presentation.

Please see this attachment and determine if you are interested in presenting and/or attending. Please include your name, contact information, and respective agency/organization. Email Jennifer Daly - Jennifer.Daly2@va.gov with interest or questions before October 1st.


Project Homeless Connect

Many of you have signed up to host a resource table or provide a service at the November 15th event. You can still register to provide a service here:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ProjectHomelessConnect2018

About 1,000 volunteers to pull this event off each year. This is a great opportunity for interns or staff new to homeless services to gain an understanding of local resources and the experiences of people in homelessness.
