May 2022 IForum: Navigating Connecticut's Housing Continuum: The Experience of Seeking Stability RECAP
On May 25th 2022, PSC hosted its first IForum of 2022, Navigating Connecticut's Housing Continuum: The Experience of Seeking Stability. The event was kicked off by executive director Kiley Gosselin and was followed by a moderated panel discussion with guest Moderator Jamil Ragland (author of 'Roadblock to the middle class: Housing insecurity in Connecticut').
Over 150 attendees were in attendance for our facilitated panel discussion which featured experts with lived experience in housing instability. Our panelists shared their expertise with instability across the housing continuum including barriers and successes with securing and maintaining stable, affordable housing, how housing subsidy has impacted their lives and communities, and ways our state can improve policy to make housing more accessible and affordable.
This was a vital conversation for all housing policymakers and practitioners working to design and implement strategies to advance affordable housing.
We'd like to thank our panelists for participating in such an engaging event. We would also like to thank the sponsors for the 2022 IForum Series: The Connecticut Department of Housing, Connecticut Housing Finance Authority, and the Melville Charitable Trust.
Finally, we'd like to thank everyone who came to listen, learn, and participate in the May 2022 IForum. If you would like to be the first to know when the next IForum is announced, make sure to sign up for our emails at this link.
