Building Partnerships Across Sectors to Improve Life Outcomes
Two teams of researchers have proposed ambitious policy solutions that would cut childhood poverty in America by 40 – 50 percent over current levels. CLPHA is pleased to feature their work during the opening plenary session of CLPHA’s Housing is Summit on Thursday, May 16.
CLPHA is pleased to announce that renowned physician, epidemiologist, researcher, and activist Dr. Camara Jones will be a keynote speaker at our fifth annual Housing Is Summit in Washington, D.C., May 16-17. Dr. Jones will open day two of the conference exploring the need to address social determinants of health to reduce health disparities as well as the interdisciplinary nature of a strong safety net.
CLPHA is pleased to announce that David A. Williams of Opportunity Insights will be a distinguished speaker at our fifth annual Housing Is Summit in Washington, D.C., May 16-17.
Williams will present on Day One of the conference, sharing promising insights from new research on the Creating Moves to Opportunity (CMTO) Project and Opportunity Insights’ new Opportunity Atlas.
At our 2018 Summit, more than 260 committed professionals from the housing, education, health, government, and foundation sectors came together to share expertise and learn from one another.
The 2018 Summit brought national policy leaders including U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson who presented a keynote address that touched on some of HUD’s efforts to work across sectors with other federal agencies.
Attendees Told Us:
“Perfect timing for the work we need to do in our community.”
“Together, we are more powerful!”
“Partnerships are key, and we can learn from each other. Maintaining and nurturing relationships with partners are important.”
“The Housing Is platform is redefining how we do our work and is needed now more than ever.”
The Housing Is Initiative, led by the Council of Large Public Housing Authorities, helps build a future where systems work together to improve life outcomes.
Fragmented service delivery systems and sioed policymaking often fail to address the needs of low-income individuals and families holistically, resulting in stagnant outcomes and costly inefficiencies. CLPHA’s Housing Is Initiative is based on the premise that systems can better meet these needs and improve life outcomes when they work together.
