More from LA Family Housing
Last month, LA Family Housing sent eight staff to the National Alliance to End Homelessness Conference. This conference is a convening of service providers, advocates, people with lived experience, and leaders to share ideas, solutions, and best practices in our work to end homelessness in people’s lives. We asked two of our staff to share their experiences and takeaways from this year’s conference.
With the number of people falling into homelessness on the rise, NIMBYs thwarting attempts to build bridge and affordable housing, and misconceptions and misinformation being spouted out carelessly, we can make a concerted effort to combat these problems by challenging our own perception, educating ourselves, and increasing our understanding of the issues and our homeless neighbors.
Through the recommendations of our staff and trends in the industry, we’ve put together a list of books that can provide you some conversation material for your next dinner party. Through education, dialogue, and compassion, we can start to shift the narrative on who our homeless neighbors are and work together toward solutions that we know work.
