While foundations have supported community organizations utilizing varying strategies to end homelessness, many approaches have failed. This session will showcase unique and effective ways in which three different organizations are addressing the challenge. Attendees will:
• understand the financial impact to cities and counties in caring for the homeless
• learn about appropriate care which can significantly reduce expense and even add to the service provider’s bottom line
• consider creative ventures which can serve to provide income to the homeless population through an entrepreneurship approach while increasing social awareness of homeless issues in the community.
