ECHO To Bring Community Together For Solutions To Homelessness Meeting

AUSTIN, Texas – On Tuesday, July 31st, the Ending Community Homelessness Coalition (ECHO) will join key stakeholders, organizations, businesses, government leaders and individuals to share a bold plan to end homelessness in Austin.

 What:    ECHO Summer Meeting

When:   July 31, 2018, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm

Where:  3Ten ACL Live

300 West Willie Nelson Boulevard

The Austin City Council endorsed the Action Plan to End Homelessness in April of this year.  The goal is to increase the outflow of persons exiting homelessness and decrease the inflow of person becoming homeless by expanding our system capacity. We’ve developed a five-point plan including components such as outreach and shelter and housing and support services to reach more homeless people in Austin – including an end to youth homelessness by 2020.  At Tuesday’s meeting we will discuss the support and funding that will be needed to create this community-wide system and address homelessness in Austin.

The meeting will feature Mayor Steve Adler, Senator Kirk Watson, Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo, Darilynn Cardona-Beiler (Integral Care), Susan McDowell (LifeWorks) and Judy Maggio from KLRU as speakers. We’ll unveil an exciting public/private partnership to help us reach our goal of ending homelessness.

There will also be resource tables and a panel discussion about how we as a community can step up and use this moment in time to show compassion for our neighbors in Austin and address homelessness in a new way.

The press is invited to attend.
