On Friday, June 9th, our fabulous partners for the PSY Baltimore Pilot met for lunch and a pilot kick-off conversation about how three distinct programs for supporting youth experiencing homelessness--rapid rehousing, host homes, and family and kinship strengthening-- can work in an integrated and collaborative way.
A recent article in the New York Times discusses the problem of homelessness among college students. The article draws on the perspectives of Paul Toro and Sara Goldrick-Rab, two leading researchers studying and raising awareness of pervasive student homelessness. We're excited that both Paul and Sara will be joining us at our symposium in June. To learn more about the problem and what we can do to solve it, read the original article (linked below), and attend the symposium!
