      EVENT DETAILS
      Fairbanks Symposium on Homelessness

      The Fairbanks Housing & Homeless Coalition (FHHC) in affiliation with the North Star Community Foundation (NSCF) will be hosting the Fairbanks Symposium on Homelessness on December 6, 2017 from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. at the Westmark Fairbanks Hotel & Conference Center (813 Noble St, Fairbanks, AK 99701-4977). The theme of the symposium will be This is What Success Looks Like and focus on implementing the two most successful housing programs available, Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) and Rapid ReHousing (RRH) programs. Fairbanks has a few PSH programs and a RRH program, but the need for these programs is much greater than the current capacity. This symposium will not only highlight individual successes from local programs, but will also bring in leading experts, funders, government officials, service providers, and property owners to begin to implement the Alaska Supportive Housing Plan. This plan is the result of an enormous amount of research in 2015, but has yet to be implemented fully at the local level. The Technical Assistance Collaborative (TAC) was heavily involved in the plan and will be providing the authors of the plan to help facilitate the symposium. Everything will be in place at the Fairbanks Symposium on Homelessness to initiate additional local PSH and/or RRH programs.                                 For more information and a complete schedule of events please visit http://www.fairbankshomeless.org/upcoming-events.html  or contact Scott Wiser: swiser@fairbanks.us or Mike Sanders: msanders@fairbanks.us                   If you plan on staying at the Westmark, let them know you are there for the symposium and get standard rooms for $79 and suites for $99.
