Roundtable Series – Stronger Together: A Roadmap to An Effective Homeless System

December 22, 2023  |  Videos
This series is designed for advocates (including people with lived expertise), system leaders, funders, program managers, and direct service providers.

A pandemic, natural disasters, lack of funding, low wages that fuel staff turnover, and the disappearance of truly affordable housing continue to impact homeless response systems. In many communities, these realities have led to increased homelessness, especially unsheltered homelessness. Now homeless response systems must reexamine and restrengthen its efforts by coordinating and ensuring fidelity to best practices in the interventions offered.

For any homelessness system – no matter if newly formed, restructuring, or well-established – this onset of unprecedented challenges may have led to decreased use of best practices across a range of interventions. This series will provide a roadmap on how these practices, when put together collectively, lead to an effective, efficient, and equitable homeless response system.

Goals of the Series


  • Understand the core elements of an effective system.
  • Understand the importance of each evidence-based intervention and as it related to the overall system.
  • Recognize the importance of centering equity, justice, and the voices of lived experience in homeless response.
  • Ensuring fidelity to each evidence-based model.
  • Understand creative approaches to rehousing individuals in tight housing markets.
