T07 – Thunderbird Motel Project • Lived Experience
This session will discuss a unique semi-independent residence initiative that was developed in a rural community. It will benefit anyone who is working with the at-risk homeless population and looking for creative strategies in providing housing options. Hear how this project came to fruition, resulting in the development of community partnerships to help support clients experiencing chronic homelessness in acquiring and maintaining home. The session will also feature two clients who will speak to their personal experiences, and successes and challenges as members of the at-risk homeless population.
