How can Indianapolis end homelessness? Tell us what you think in this unique town hall meeting and workshop to create a community plan.
Home means different things to different people. At its core home is about safety, comfort, community, and belonging. We believe that everyone in Indianapolis deserves a home. Unfortunately, 5,000 – 8,300 individuals experience homelessness in our community annually.
The Blueprint 3.0 will be our community’s plan toward the goal of ending homelessness. This dynamic plan weaves together community input, best practices, research, and data to develop practical strategies to end homelessness. We invite you to provide your voice to this process that will help more people experience “home” and make Indianapolis a better place for all of our residents.
This day-long workshop is geared for service providers and concerned community members alike. Nationally recognized expert on homelessness Dr. Dennis Culhane of the University of Pennsylvania School of Social Policy and Practice will be the featured speaker.
Presented by Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention (CHIP), Veterans Homelessness Task Force, Community Education and Public Policy Committee of the Continuum of Care, and IU Public Policy Institute.
