Homelessness effects public entities in a variety of ways. Typically, health and human services organizations are at the forefront of the issue given their mission. However, homelessness effects other organizations such as law enforcement, parks and recreation, and schools and educational facilities. This panel discussion will give an overview of challenges around homelessness from differing perspectives within public entities, address best practices, and provide a framework for developing policies and programs. There will be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions and discuss homelessness issues both with the panel members and in an open forum.
