iForum: Preventing Future Chronic Homelessness Live Stream

Since 2012, Connecticut has been building a system that enables us to identify, assess, prioritize and match the most vulnerable population experiencing chronic homelessness to housing resources within a short period of time. While we have been able to greatly reduce the number of those experiencing chronic homelessness, we understand that this is an ongoing and complex problem.

This IForum will explore how we integrate mainstream systems such as behavioral health, criminal justice, and health care systems, and assure that there are pathways to address issues related to affordable and supportive housing. Adequate case management and health services to promote housing stability for those experiencing chronic homelessness will be discussed.
