May 23: The Value of a Peer Workforce in the Homelessness System

NYAPRS Note: On Wednesday, May 23, 2018  1:00 p.m.–2:15 p.m. ET Persons with Lived Experience Spotlight Series Webinar #3 features three members of the peer workforce talking about their experiences working in the homelessness system, along with the transformative roles peers play in supporting housing and reducing homelessness. The peer workforce is a particularly unique component of the homelessness service system.  It is immensely valuable for individuals with mental and/or substance use disorders who are experiencing homelessness to receive support from someone who has walked in their shoes.
