Finding Housing Can Be a Big LIFT for the Ex-incarcerated

The First Congregational JONAH Core Team will present a special virtual forum on Tuesday, April 13, from 7:00 to 8:00 PM. The forum will present the work of JONAH’s LIFT Team over the past 15 months.

“LIFT: Giving People a Chance through Overcoming Housing Barriers,” is a presentation that provides information on the importance of housing as a social determinate of health, barriers ex-incarcerated people face in securing safe and affordable housing, and current local services. The presentation also identifies evidence-based solutions to the issue. The collaborative presentation, including first-hand accounts by those most impacted by the issue, will be led by dynamic representatives from JONAH, the Eau Claire City-County Health Department, EXPO (Ex-incarcerated People Organizing), FREE, and LE Phillips Library. The purpose of the presentation is to educate and encourage the community and our medical health systems to make changes that will support those community members who struggle with the highest barriers to securing safe, decent, and affordable housing.
