Heartland Alliance, in partnership with Funders Together to End Homelessness, the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness, and with the support of Melville Charitable Trust and the Oak Foundation, convened over 60 stakeholders in October 2017 for the Preventing & Ending Homelessness through Employment: Lessons Learned & Pathways Forward summit in Washington, D.C. The event brought together and galvanized a cross-section of experts including individuals with lived experience of homelessness, community-based organizations, government partners, philanthropy, national workforce, homelessness, and anti-poverty policy experts, and researchers to consider the lessons learned, challenges, and successes in supporting pathways to employment and economic mobility for individuals who have experienced homelessness or housing instability. In particular, lessons were drawn from Heartland Alliance's efforts to seed, incubate, and spread public systems collaboration efforts through the Connections Project, which is focused on increasing employment and economic mobility for individuals who have experienced homelessness or housing instability.
