A conversation centered on ending chronic homelessness will be the topic of a Zoom webinar hosted by the East Bay Leadership Council (EBLC) Thurs., Apr 6, from 12- 1:15 p.m. The webinar, “Ending Chronic Homelessness featuring Rosanne Haggerty,” is the third and final event in the council’s 2023 East Bay Leadership Series.

The President and CEO of Community Solutions, Rosanne Haggerty, will join the conversation to share her perspective as an international leader in developing strategies to end homelessness. Community Solutions works with U.S. and international communities to not only establish systems to end homelessness, but also alter the conditions that cause it.

While some of Community Solutions’ stand-out initiatives have included the 100,000 Homes Campaign and Built for Zero, Haggerty founded Common Ground Community, a trailblazer in developing supportive housing models and other research that eradicates homelessness and improves communities.

“This is a must attend event for anyone ready to be part of the solution to chronic homelessness in the East Bay,” said the EBLC on the event registration page.

The webinar is sponsored by Chevron Richmond, Kaiser Permanente, Assetmark, Martinez Refining Company and other sustaining sponsors.

Employees of EBLC member companies can attend the webinar for free, while non-members pay $25. To learn more or register for the webinar, click here.
