The National Alliance to End Homelessness conference in Washington DC during the week of July 22nd did not disappoint. CCEH staff was again invited to present on a variety of different topics. Deputy Director, Mimi Haley, facilitated a discussion for the Capacity-Building Network on systems collaboration, co-led a workshop for YHDP communities, and presented on panels for Coordinated Entry Evaluation and Youth-Family mediation strategies. Sarah Fox, again co-led our Capitol Hill Advocacy Days and also presented on shelter diversion in CT. Carl Asikainen, our Youth Systems Coordinator, led a panel on innovative practices in host homes, highlighting the work of Noank Community Services and Council of Churches. Tashmia Bryant, our Training and Technical Assistance Coordinated, was a first time attendee and presented on the race & equity work she has done and is planning this year.
