2018 Fall Conference & Annual Meeting

Helping to End Homelessness

DECATUR, Ill. (WICS) — Helping to end homelessness is the goal of a two-day conference in Decatur.
Representatives from non-profits, housing authorities, County and local government were present Tuesday to learn more about how to keep their area’s homeless numbers low.

Those in attendance also learned how to help others, such as landlords, be able to work with those who are underprivileged in order to keep more people off the streets.

“I know that homelessness really is a problem throughout every community and if you don’t see someone sleeping on the street, there’s probably someone Who is facing a housing crisis and who could quickly fall into homelessness,” Program Manager for HUD Nora Lilly said.

The conference will continue Wednesday morning and experts will share strategies and resources they believe will help end homelessness.

The State of Homelessness in America charts progress in ending homelessness in the United States. Using the most recently available national data, it is intended to serve as a reference for policymakers, journalists, advocates, and the public on trends in homelessness, homeless assistance, and at-risk populations at the national and state levels.
