Regardless of your role in the community, YOU have the ability to ensure children and youth experiencing housing instability or homelessness have access to high quality Expanded Learning Opportunity (ELO) programs. Join us and see how different systems (ELOs, Schools, and Housing) are working together on behalf of the youth they collectively serve. In this workshop we will highlight projects taking place in King County, the City of Bellevue, and California to meet the needs of families and youth living in affordable housing and youth experiencing homelessness.
