The South Hampton Roads Taskforce on Ending Homelessness will hold its fourth regional conference on March 8, 2012. This one-day event will be held at the Webb Cener on the campus of Old Dominion University.
The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for local and regional leaders, service providers and industry stakeholders to share best practice information and promote strategic planning as it relates to addressing homelessness. The conference will feature presentations and workshops by local and national industry experts. Topics included; Re-entry for Ex-Offenders, Accessing Services for Homeless Veterans, Rapid Rehousing in Virginia, Employment Strategies for the Homeless, Faith Partnership Networking and Resources.
Established in 2005, the Task Force is an active working task force that implements the regional activities approved by the Mayors of the cities of Chesapeake, Franklin, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk and Virginia Beach. It also consists of staff participants from a variety of offices in each locality as well other nonprofit organizations including the Hampton Roads Planning District Commission, The Planning Council and United Way of South Hampton Roads. Together, through the Task Force, these localities and organizations address homelessness on a regional basis as an addition to being able to strengthen their own locality programs and efforts.
