Housing First for Veterans Experiencing Homelessness workshop

Please circulate the following email to staff/members who might be interesting in attending our upcoming Housing First for Veterans Experiencing Homelessness workshop.

I am contacting you on behalf of Dr. Cheryl Forchuk (Western University and Lawson Health Research Institute) and Jan Richardson (Manager of Homelessness Prevention, City of London).

We are working with the Royal Canadian Legions and the Homeless Partnering Strategy to hold workshops across Canada addressing homelessness among veterans. We are organizing this workshop on January 25, 2017 in Niagara Falls at the Royal Legion Branch #479. There is no cost to attend.
 
The main objective is to share lessons learned from a two-year project evaluating a Canadian Model for supporting veterans experiencing homelessness (see http://www.homelessprevention.ca/ ). We aim to bring together community agencies and stakeholders to exchange ideas, strategies, and tools, and to build a local network through a Housing First model.

Attached is an invitation and proposed agenda for the workshop. You may RSVP to homelessvetsworkshops@gmail.com

Thank you,
Bryanna
