About the Event:  Join MEREDA on February 1st, 2024 at the McGoldrick Career & Student Success Center, 35 Bedford Street, Portland, as our expert panelists engage in a thought-provoking conversation about Housing the Unhoused and Asylum Seekers. This discussion aims to provide a deeper understanding of the complexities surrounding how to provide housing and social services for those who are unhoused and seeking asylum.

Our panelists will share their insights and experiences from working in the field of housing and social services. They will delve into the various challenges and issues faced by the unhoused and asylum seekers, including how one developer has succeeded in developing and financing critically needed housing.

This is a unique opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the issues surrounding housing and social services for the unhoused and asylum seekers. We encourage you to join us and be a part of this insightful exploration.
