On Sept. 14, funders, practitioners and other Philadelphians concerned about homelessness will gather at the Pennovation Center in Southwest Philadelphia, and you should be there.

Why? Because you, regardless of what you do, have a perspective that can be useful to coming up with new solutions to end homelessness. This workshop has one requirement for attendees: a desire to be plugged in to efforts around the city that address this huge issue for our city.

Learn from experts in the field to understand the programs, challenges and opportunities that are out there. Resources for Human Development will be helping to set the stage, illustrating their own work as well as the work of many other organizations across the city.

Afterward, attendees will get down into the weeds, sharing and workshopping opportunities to collaborate. Bring your own creativity, insights and perspectives to work on new solutions. Whether you already work in the field, or are a concerned citizen, you have a role to play in ending homelessness.

Want some inspiration? Take a look at this video about One Step Away, one of 50 different programs that RHD runs to equip homeless individuals with skills to change their lives for the better. 

It’s solutions like these, that take a different tack and provide opportunity, that we’re looking to source and grow.

Blueprint: Homelessness is happening on Wednesday, Sept. 14, from 1 to 5 p.m. Through this Sunday, tickets to this workshop event are only $30 — afterwards, they’ll go up to $40.
