Hello Everyone,

On May 12th from 12:30-4:30PM, The Office of Child and Family Services and MaineHousing invite you to participate in an independently facilitated deliberate, Strategic Planning Forum about Ending Youth Homelessness in Maine. As there are many people working on this mission in various capacities across Maine, we look forward to bringing everyone together for this essential process. This is a community effort, so inviting those who are and are not part of the Continuum of Care will provide us with a holistic approach to strategic planning. Please come ready to share your thoughts as we identify service gaps and needs, hear what is working well across the entire State of Maine, and develop a framework for action to end youth homelessness in Maine.

Please forward this along if you know someone who would be interested in participating in this group discussion.

Craig Freshley from Good Group Decisions will be the Strategic Planning Facilitator for this event.

We look forward to working with all of you on this incredibly important issue.  More information will be forwarded at a later date.

Please electronically RSVP no later than May 1st: https://homelessyouthforum.eventbrite.com
