Join us for a discussion with Dr. Jill Khadduri, co-author of “In the Midst of Plenty: Homelessness and What to Do About It”, a book that discusses solutions that both local communities and national policymakers can apply now to end the U.S. homelessness crisis. The book shifts our understanding of homelessness away from issues of individual circumstance and embeds it in the larger context of poverty, income inequality, housing affordability, and social exclusion. It is organized around four questions: Who becomes homeless? Why do people become homeless? How do we end homelessness? How do we prevent it? Dr. Khadduri will give an overview of the major findings of the study, and then our esteemed panelists will address the issues raised in the book. There will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.
This seminar will be an excellent resource for professionals, advocates, and decision-makers as well as anyone interested in helping to end homelessness.
