The Office of the Ten-Year Plan to End Chronic Homelessness would like to invite the public to a public conversation on Wednesday evening, May 19, 2010 from 6:00-7:00pm at the Cansler Family YMCA (616 Jessamine St., Knoxville, TN 37917; 637-9622). We’ll be discussing the cost of permanent supportive housing. Bill Lyons, Senior Director of Policy and Communications for the City of Knoxville, and Jon Lawler, Director of the TYP, will present during the first half of our time. The second half will be reserved for questions and conversation related to the subject of costs related to PSH.
This is the second in a series of similar public conversations. The Ten-Year Plan office (TYP) has heard from community members in many different venues that we need to be more open and transparent in our communication about the work we’re doing to end chronic homelessness. We agree, and are committed to an open dialog and a clear and open process of developing and implementing solutions to chronic homelessness.
We would like to keep these meetings concise, to respect the time commitments made by attendees. We’ll offer them on a regular basis, and invite presenters who can speak to their areas of expertise and to the roles that they play in support of the TYP. We’ll open up the floor for questions and conversation on the specific issue being addressed, and we’ll ask attendees for ideas about subjects they’d like for us to address in future public conversations.
