NVTAC Webinar - Serving Homeless Veterans in Rural Programs


NVTAC Webinar – Serving Homeless Veterans in Rural Programs
Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2015 at 2:00 pm EDT
The NCHV NVTAC is hosting the webinar "Serving Homeless Veterans in Rural Programs" on Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. EDT.
Serving homeless veterans is both challenging and rewarding work. For organizations that work in non-urban areas, that challenge is further complicated by a unique set of barriers associated with the realities of rural life. This webinar will explore these obstacles and discuss strategies to overcome them including how to establish effective partnerships. This session will feature two successful HVRP grantees, Skye Biasetti from U.S.VETS - Prescott (AZ) and Cathrene “Cat” Nichols from the Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs as presenters.

The first time home buyer or nonprofit cannot play in that field. The good news is that they have run up prices to the point that they are now priced out of their own market. My concern is what happens when these mega companies begin to divest themselves of properties?" --Anthony Jones on REO to Rental: Wall Street's Latest Idea Hurts California Communities
