Webinar: Effective Responses to Homeless Issues

Originally presented September 8, 2016

The challenges surrounding homelessness can seem overwhelming.

The people experiencing homelessness in your library may seem like they have intractable problems, maybe mental illness, maybe an addiction... Homelessness itself has deep societal causes ranging from affordable housing to income disparity... What can a library possibly do, right?

Actually, a lot.

This webinar offers two compelling perspectives on this topic.

Jared Oates, Niche Academy COO, shows how the most effective libraries are acting as a powerful catalyst within their own communities to implement practical and locally relevant solutions.

Ryan Dowd has been working with the homeless for decades and is currently the Executive Director of the second largest homeless shelter in Illinois. Ryan presented actionable advice on dealing with problems that arise every day in the library.
