Centering Lived Experience

At MCAH, we firmly believe in the power of lived experience. The event provided a platform for individuals who have faced homelessness to share their stories, insights, and ideas. Their voices were at the center of the discussions, ensuring that their experiences directly inform our efforts to address homelessness and create lasting change.

Creating a Vision for Housing Equity

The event focused on co-creating a vision for housing equity in Washtenaw County. Through interactive panel discussions, participants explored innovative strategies, policies, and programs that can help ensure everyone in our community has access to safe, affordable, and stable housing. The lived experience of individuals who have faced homelessness played a pivotal role in shaping these conversations and driving our collective vision.

Collaborative Solutions

The event fostered collaboration among attendees, including community organizations, policymakers, and service providers. By bringing together diverse perspectives and expertise, we worked towards developing comprehensive solutions that address the root causes of homelessness and promote housing equity throughout Michigan. The event served as a starting point for ongoing partnerships and collaborations that will further our mission.

Continuing the Conversation

We are committed to continuing the conversation and taking action based on the insights gained from this event. The voices and experiences shared during the event will guide our future initiatives, advocacy efforts, and program development. We invite all community members to stay engaged and join us in our journey towards ending homelessness and creating a community where everyone has a place to call home.
