A plan to expand housing and opportunity for residents without addresses.

Join us to hear directly from the City of Newark’s newly-appointed Homelessness Czar, Sakinah Hoyte, on a comprehensive strategy to address the homelessness issue in Newark. Early initiatives include a new low-barrier shelter, construction of hundreds of units of affordable and supportive housing with community partners, and an innovative container home project for our most hard to reach residents without addresses. After Sakinah’s presentation, we will hear from a panel of on-the-ground practitioners including:
Shahilda Boynes - Director Bridges Outreach, Inc.
Michael Woods - Grants Analyst Essex County Division of Community Action
Duane Knight - Director Section 8 Housing Program Newark Housing Authority

Cost: Free for CNJG Members; $50 for Non Member Grantmakers
This program is only open to staff and trustees from grantmaking organizations.
