Partnership for Strong Communities: Preventing Future Chronic Homelessness IForum

May 31 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am

Free

Since 2012, Connecticut has been building a system to identify, assess, prioritize and match the most vulnerable people experiencing chronic homelessness to housing resources within a short period of time. Through a coordinated effort supported by Governor Malloy, the Departments of Housing and Mental Health and Addiction Services, federal and local partners statewide, Connecticut has become a leader in ensuring that homelessness is rare, brief and nonrecurring for this population. This IForum will examine strategies for how Connecticut can maintain an effective end to chronic homelessness by further strengthening the homeless response system and working with mainstream systems to prevent it. How can we ensure that these systems – including mental health, criminal justice and health care – are equipped to address issues related to affordable and supportive housing, and the need for sufficient case management and health services?
