March 11 presentation: Regulatory Structures of Responding to Homelessness

March 5, 2019 – News

The City and Borough of Juneau is holding an informational session on understanding the tools and resources communities use to address homelessness.  The presentation will take place on March 11, 12 p.m. in City Hall Chambers.

Housing & Homelessness Services Coordinator Irene Gallion’s presentation is geared for elected officials and public servants who need to understand the bureaucratic structures of responding to homelessness. The talk will focus on three Federal definitions of homelessness, the standards for a “continuum of care,” and how Juneau’s housing and service providers address each of the elements. In addition, Gallion will talk on the various private and governmental sources of funding for homelessness services. This informational session is about existing structures, not advocacy.

For more information, contact Housing & Homelessness Services Coordinator Irene Gallion at 586-0623 or Irene.Gallion@juneau.org. If you plan on attending, an RSVP is appreciated though not required.
