Encountering & Serving Individuals Experiencing Homelessness

  • E-Learning

Being homeless is a complex social problem that impacts the quality of life in our communities. There are no easy solutions. Much of it is created by affordable housing shortages, chronic unemployment, mental illness, substance abuse and changes in our mental health laws.
