2019 National Conference on Ending Homelessness and Capitol Hill Day
The National Alliance to End Homelessness conference in Washington DC during the week of July 22nd did not disappoint. CCEH staff was again invited to present on a variety of different topics. Deputy Director, Mimi Haley, facilitated a discussion for the Capacity-Building Network on systems collaboration, co-led a workshop for YHDP communities, and presented on panels for Coordinated Entry Evaluation and Youth-Family mediation strategies. Sarah Fox, again co-led our Capitol Hill Advocacy Days and also presented on shelter diversion in CT. Carl Asikainen, our Youth Systems Coordinator, led a panel on innovative practices in host homes, highlighting the work of Noank Community Services and Council of Churches.
