Registration Open for Hampton Roads Housing Consortium Event

HRHC LogoThe Hampton Roads Housing Consortium (HRHC) opened registration this week for Pathways to Partnership. The event, to be held Thursday, July 11th, at the Chesapeake Conference Center, is designed to provide a discussion forum for professionals from public, private and non-profit organizations as well as others interested in expanding housing opportunities for low and moderate income households. This event hopes to be the first step in bridging the “knowledge gap” between housing programs and other community services such as, human services programs, mental health programs, services for the disabled and the elderly, and more. The HRHC receives staff support from the HRPDC.

Participants can expect an interactive discussion on numerous housing related topics designed to assist in building better services and programs while fostering partnerships, sharing knowledge and resources, and identifying impediments to providing effective, worthwhile assistance to clients!
