This webinar took place on May 11th, 2022 – Homelessness and housing insecurity have become an ever-increasing problem for college students across the country. College Housing Northwest (a nonprofit in Portland, Oregon) has been housing college students for over 50 years and is leading the way to increase regional affordable housing options. In this webinar participants will:
• Hear from leaders of the new Affordable Rents for College Students (ARCS) program, college and community partners, as well as a student who has benefited from the program;
• Learn how an equity focus, strategic partnerships, and a student-centered approach are the cornerstones of this unique and growing program;
• Have an opportunity to ask questions and identify partnership opportunities that may exist in your community.
