Topics discussed at this event include:
How to ensure lived experience is represented in decision-making?
What are those programs and how can they address the needs of our community?
Are there upstream connections to treatment, services and housing that can prevent tragic events?
What initiatives exist to help shelter chronically homeless individuals?
