July 22-23, 2012
Crowne Plaza Hotel
Downtown Richmond, Virginia
To foster hope and recovery for those experiencing homelessness and mental illness, the National Alliance on Mental Illness of Virginia (NAMI VA) and the Virginia Coalition to End Homelessness (VCEH) are hosting a two-day statewide summit for advocates interested in creating concrete local community plans.
These plans will address the housing needs of individuals with mental health issues. The Summit invites localities to send teams of housing and homelessness experts and advocates, mental health professionals, and family and consumer advocates to participate.
Permanent supportive housing, an evidence-based model, is effective in addressing the unique barriers to housing stability. Participants will hear from experts on developing affordable housing and delivering services, and what is needed to create safe, stable, and affordable housing. Communities will leave with preliminary local action plans to coordinate efforts to create housing and to seek needed funding resources.
