Sixty Advocates and Policymakers Share Recommendations and Proven Strategies
On March 25, 2014, the New Jersey State Interagency Council on Homelessness held a hearing that gave advocates and policymakers the opportunity to give recommendations for the State’s Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness.
About 60 individuals attended the hearing, which was held at the NJ State Museum Auditorium in Trenton.
Many of the speakers referenced proven strategies for preventing and ending homelessness in their recommendations including:
Centralized/Coordinated Assessment Systems, and
Public Housing Authorities Prioritizing Homeless Households.
Three members of Monarch Housing’s staff, Jay Everett, Kate Kelly and Taiisa Kelly, testified highlighting the strategies above. The other speakers represented Continua of Care, housing and service providers and other advocates.
We have posted some of the testimony and will add more to the list as we have them. If you testified and would like to have it added to the list please send us an email.
