Holmes Stoner Address at Holistic Approach to Ending Homelessness:Dignifying the Needy

New York 14 Feb, Holmes Stoner, Chairman of the American International Chamber of Commerce attended and spoke at a Dignifying the Needy (CSocD58 Side Event) of United Nations conference in New York on 14 February.

The government interventions approach to ending homelessness mainly centers on quick-fix solutions of moving people experiencing homelessness into independent and permanent housing shelters, but it is important to address these complexities together when considering methods of addressing homelessness, as one strategy does not apply for every community. Affordable housing and social protection can have a tremendous impact in addressing homelessness.

For this purpose, the Side Event will Review the inter-connectedness between homelessness and poverty and health and well-being of homeless individuals or people at risk of it as well as explore options for reducing youth that is at risk of human trafficking, drug abuse, or broken homes; Elaborate on the importance of focusing on the various ways to contribute to ending homelessness, with a focus on individual roles because every contribution to supporting the cause counts; Highlight the critical importance on the preventative framework.
