The Council of Large Public Housing Authorities (CLPHA) hosted The Housing Is Summit in Washington, D.C., on May 3-4, 2018 with 200 partners across the housing, education, and healthcare sectors. The Summit highlighted the ways that we can transform systems to better serve low-income people with two days of plenary speakers/panels, breakout sessions, and caucus discussions geared toward intersectional thinking and ways to take action.
This community is a space for Housing Is members interested in literacy and grade-level proficiency. Persistent educational disparities among low-income children hinder their abilities to achieve economic success in adulthood. The Housing Is initiative stands on the notion that affordable housing is influenced by a variety of systems, and that it is only through cross- sector collaboration that we will build the partnerships that will help improve lives.
