Roanoke, VA – On Monday, Aug. 7, the 2017 Blue Ridge Continuum of Care Housing Symposium: Retooling Our Crisis Response System will take place at the Salem Civic Center, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. This year’s symposium is focused on strengthening the crisis response system to ensure that homelessness is rare, brief, and non-reoccurring.
Panel discussions will address how to improve service delivery and equip our community with the tools necessary to support systemic change in our approach to addressing homelessness. Participants will receive a wealth of information designed to enhance their practice with homeless families and individuals, as well as resources for a new framework for thinking about our community's response to homelessness.
Sponsors include the City of Roanoke, the City of Salem, Roanoke County, the Council of Community Services, and the Virginia Housing Development Authority.
