NLC addresses the homelessness crisis facing cities across our nation – join Washington cities in a conversation about these issues at our Annual Conference

NLC recently posted an article by Elisha Harig-Blaine, Principal Associate for Housing, about how cities can best address homeless encampments. Washington’s cities are facing many of the same challenges highlighted in the post. AWC has been working over the past several months to bring cities together to discuss leading practices and potential solutions to addressing our communities’ homelessness crisis. At the AWC Annual Conference we are pleased to continue this effort with a session on Wednesday titled Homelessness: A community crisis. Elisha Harig-Blaine from NLC will be one of the panelists along with Mount Vernon Mayor Boudreau and Julie Frauenholtz of Everett.
