Conducting Homeless Counts on Native American Lands

Date: March 13, 2012
Time: 2:00 – 3:00 PM Eastern
Registration: https://cc.readytalk.com/cc/s/registrations/new?cid=9kowvf25jgfy

The Housing Assistance Council (HAC) is pleased to invite you to a webinar highlighting its recent publication Conducting Homeless Counts on Native American Lands: A Toolkit. It is often difficult to address homelessness on Native American lands, due to the challenge in quantifying the number of actual homeless individuals living therein. While there is ‘literal’ homelessness on Native American lands, many Native Americans also live in extremely crowded conditions with family and relatives which is another, less visible, form of homelessness. Places with small, spread-out populations, like most Native American lands, typically have few shelters or service providers forcing homeless individuals to rely on strong kinship networks to find a place to stay. Issues surrounding tribal mistrust of the federal government, a lack of understanding of tribal sovereignty and diversity among Indian nations by outside entities, cultural competencies, and legal complexities associated with tribal lands create additional challenges to conducting an accurate count.

Based upon past research as well as interviews with key stakeholders in the field, the webinar will provide insights on how to conduct outreach, plan homeless surveys, partner with other researchers and organizations, and secure funding.
