Conversations on Housing Instability in Indianapolis

Housing is a basic human need for all people, but not everyone has adequate housing.

During these four conversations, panelists with expertise in different industries will share more about housing and how it affects different aspects of our community, from

  • Education
  • Violence
  • Health
  • and Government.

Those in attendance will gain a better understanding of housing concerns that affect our neighbors.

Additional resources will also be available at each session.
