State of Rural Housing Call #1 Recording from May 8th, 2018

This webinar was the first of a series of events to begin a process of unpacking these complicated issues surrounding housing and move forward as a community towards solution focused thinking. Although our focus is housing in rural areas, we acknowledge that these issues are not isolated to rural and so we welcome everyone to participate in the conversation. We discussed: Themes for future discussions and trainings, Emerging practices and success stories from the field, Beginning a framework for working together as a community to address housing as a barrier.
