Thank You For Joining Our 2014 Funders Forum!
Funders passionately engage at our Interactive TableTalk sessions on Family & Youth Homelessness
We're back from New Orleans, having hosted a successful Funders Forum, and we'd like to say a special thank you to our participants, speakers, facilitators, and of course, the National Alliance to End Homelessness for making our 2014 
Funders Forum on Family & Youth Homelessness an important and engaging day. If you weren't able to make it, we'll be featuring post-event learning on our blog and next month's bulletin. If you did make it, have you filled out our Evaluation Survey yet? Send us your feedback by March 10th, and you'll enter to win a $50.00 Amazon giftcard.
A Fond Farewell to a Friend
Laura Zeilinger and Barb Poppe at the NAEH Reception in New Orleans on February 18th, 2014.
We'd like to express our sincere gratitude, appreciation, and respect for the integral work, friendship, and partnership of Barbara Poppe, who will be ending her tenure as Executive Director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness this month. While we're sad to see her go, we're excited to join in on welcoming Laura Zeilinger as the agency's next Executive Director.
Read their latest USICH blogs below, and join us in wishing all the best to Barb, and a warm welcome to Laura.
