Attendees will learn about various topics related to homelessness including mental health, lived experience, the effects on youth, criminalization of homelessness, local law enforcement perspectives, and current local services.
Presenters from across the state will discuss how their communities are working to end homelessness. Organizers emphasized the event is free but registration and a ticket are required as space is limited.
