D10: Cross Systems Collaboration to Effectively Address Housing Needs

Cross systems collaborations are working throughout the Commonwealth to address the housing needs of special needs populations. These collaborations are not only cost effective in an environment of shrinking resources, but also ensure a holistic approach to the delivery of housing and services.  Three current models will be addressed:  a collaboration that brings together aging, housing and behavioral health systems in Bedford County; a model that brings together the criminal justice, behavioral health, homeless, housing and human service systems in Union County, and a model that brings together children and youth, housing and human services in Delaware County.

Moderator & Speaker: Diana T. Myers, Senior Vice President, Diana T. Myers and Associates, Inc.

Speaker(s): Connie Brode, Executive Director, Huntingdon, Bedford Fulton Area Agency on Aging; Bruce Quigley, Executive Director, Housing Authority of Union County; Chris Seibert; Deputy Administrator, Adult & Family Services, Delaware County Office of Behavioral Health.
