To kick-off 2018, A Way Home Canada, the Canadian Observatory on Homelessness and Turner Strategies are excited to invite you to the Systems Planning 101 Webinar!
This is the first in a series of learning opportunities the three organizations have partnered to develop under the evidence-led Systems Planning Collective, recognizing the need to support communities in this direction. The Systems Planning Collective is a capacity building and technical assistance body dedicated to supporting communities in efforts to prevent and end all forms of homelessness in Canada.
Systems Planning 101
Evidence-led systems planning has emerged as a leading approach in addressing homelessness. Systems planning is a process for reconfiguring how policy, resources, services and stakeholders involved can align efforts to affect the desired change. System planning using Housing First as a guiding philosophy is a method of organizing and delivering services, housing, and programs that co-ordinates diverse resources to ensure that efforts align with homelessness-reduction goals.
In this webinar, we will be providing an overview of systems planning, examples of essential elements involved, and implementation guidance.
The speakers are:
Melanie Redman, President & CEO at A Way Home Canada
Dr. Stephen Gaetz, President & CEO at Canadian Observatory on Homelessness
Dr. Alina Turner, Turner Strategies
