CLP: Targeting homelessness in Greenville: What does it take to achieve ‘safe, affordable homes for all’?

January 18, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

As housing prices increase and the population of Greenville continues to grow, the challenges of finding and keeping safe, affordable housing continue to rise for many of our neighbors. At this CLP, attendees will get a chance to learn about the causes and consequences of homelessness, particularly in Greenville County, through a conversation between Dr. Claire Gilliland in Sociology and Susan McLarty, the Director for the Greenville Homeless Alliance (GHA).

Participants will have a chance to hear about what makes homelessness a difficult social problem across the U.S. Then, they will have a chance to understand how the GHA is seeking to respond to it through education, advocacy, collaboration, and innovation. Additionally, we will be joined by some of GHA’s partners who will share about their personal experiences with homelessness and about the programs and support systems that worked for them. After learning about homelessness and the GHA, attendees will have an opportunity to ask their own questions about this important social problem.
