WEBINAR: How COVID Changed How We Address Homelessness

January 29th, 2024, Noon - 1 PM CST

Presented by Emily Kenney, LCSW

In 2020, the world was sent into an unprecedented crisis due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Because of the recognition of the economic downturn and personal crisis that many people were experiencing, the federal government invested in basic needs support. Because of the investment in rental assistance and other housing dollars, local communities were able to create different solutions to homelessness. This session will cover innovative strategies used around the state with COVID housing dollars, the impact of those funds, and what’s next for communities now that this additional funding has ended

3 Objectives:

  1. To understand the homeless service delivery system in the United States.
  2. To discuss implications of policy decisions during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
  3. To learn some basic advocacy points for addressing homelessness as social workers.
