Outreach Coordinator Attends National Alliance to End Homelessness Conference

Outreach Coordinator Attends National Alliance to End Homelessness Conference

Sara Sunderman, Outreach Coordinator, attended the 2020 Solutions for Individual Homeless Adults Conference in Oakland, CA last month. The conference convened stakeholders from across all sectors to examine what they know about people who are homeless without their families, and to discover new ways to help end their homelessness. The largest group of people experiencing homelessness is individuals living on their own.  Yet, except for smaller subgroups such as veterans and people who are disabled, they are rarely prioritized and seldom receive housing assistance. This event explored emerging research, innovative strategies, and proven best practices to address homelessness among this key population. In addition to elevating and articulating a clear strategy for this group, the conference explored solutions for important subpopulations, including young adults, veterans, and those experiencing chronic homelessness.  After the conference, we are happy  to report MTKO is on the best practice track to do our part to end homelessness.  Thank you Sara for representing Matt Talbot and helping us bring Bold Hope to our guests!
