Housing Solutions and Overcoming Barriers

As we approach our goal of ending chronic homelessness by the end of this year, many providers are being challenged to house some of their clients with unique circumstances. Some difficult dilemmas include how to assist with clients who exhibit resistance to housing placement, how to serve clients banned from shelter, and how to overcome significant mental health and/or substance abuse barriers.

To overcome these challenges, check out this helpful webinar and other resources. Together, we can work toward creative solutions to house all individuals and families experiencing homeless in Connecticut.
