The negative impacts of homelessness and housing instability are well documented.  Stable housing improves child, youth and adult outcomes for health, education, health and economic well-being.  Communities which strive to ensure that all households are safely and stably housed will also achieve the ambitious goal of ending and preventing homelessness. 

Your Way Home Montgomery County has contracted with Barbara Poppe to research evidence-based and promising practices to prevent eviction and support housing stability for at-risk individuals and families.  This research project is designed to inform local policy that supports and encourages public-private strategies and investments and to present concepts that could be replicated in communities beyond Montgomery County. 

Who should attend:  This is a Funder-only event.  Funders interested in learning new approaches to stabilizing individuals and families as well as learning more about the accomplishments of Your Way Home Montgomery County are encouraged to attend. 

RSVP:  By May 5 to Christine McCormick, 215-716-5400 or cmccormick@healthspark.org
