The Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA) hosted The Housing Is Summit in Washington, D.C., on May 3-4, 2018 with 200 partners across the housing, education, and healthcare sectors. The Summit highlighted the ways that we can transform systems to better serve low-income people with two days of plenary speakers/panels, breakout sessions, and caucus discussions geared toward intersectional thinking and ways to take action.
Recorded at CLPHA's 2017 Affordable Housing & Education Summit on July 12, 2017.
What are we learning about key connections and supports for adolescents in public/affordable housing that enable high school graduation and successful transitions to higher education and/or good jobs? This panel explores recent research findings as well as on-the-ground examples.
This community is a space for Housing Is members interested in youth. Low-income youth face unique challenges and opportunities as their families move towards self-sufficiency through housing assistance; some youth are experiencing homelessness or are independent from guardians.
