The guidance of people with lived expertise makes it clear that we must reimagine our approaches to sheltering people. Framework for an Equitable Homelessness Response partners have developed recommendations for how communities can pursue such transformation. This includes creating interim housing and sheltering options that are responsive to the needs and recommendations of people experiencing homelessness, with a sustained focus on racial justice and equity. Participants will explore these approaches, learn from organizations about improvements and outcomes they have achieved, and identify steps forward to take in their own communities and programs.
