Partners in Progress

at CARES of NY, Inc.

A Workshop Series

Partners in Progress is a workshop series developed by CARES of NY, Inc. that focuses on supporting Continuum of Care work to address homelessness through learning about best practices and coordinating with systems partners. The topics come from our partners and Continuums of Care - recommendations based on innovative practices that Upstate New York communities want to learn more about, discuss informally, and derive next steps for action.
Partners in Progress workshops are open to all levels of staffing, as well as to systems partners (such as those in the healthcare, foster care, criminal justice, affordable housing, or government fields) interested in learning more about innovative practices to address homelessness. We hope you find them of benefit.
