Roofs to Roots: Center for Community Leadership Forum
In 2009, 5,118 people in Kent County entered the homelessness system. Of those, 38% were families and 62% were individuals. How can you play a part in implementing a vision that focuses on putting housing first and ending homelessness as we know it by 2014?
Join the Center for Community Leadership for a panel discussion with partners of the Grand Rapids Area Coalition to End Homelessness to learn how Grand Rapids is taking a systems thinking approach to reframe the response to homelessness in our community.
Panelists will include Janay Brower, Coordinator for the Grand Rapids Area Coalition to End Homelessness, along with Betty Zylstra, Director of The Salvation Army Booth Family Services, and Laurie Craft, Program Director at the Grand Rapids Community Foundation.
