 Dear Alliance Partners:
 
 We invite you to join us at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time, April 10, 2003, for
a conference call workshop on strategies to pay for housing for families
exiting homelessness.  The call will feature Steve Renahan of the
Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles and Mark Hendrickson of
Hennepin County Housing (Hennepin County, MN). Mr. Renahan will discuss
the partnership between the Housing Authority and homeless service
organizations in L.A. to make Section 8 vouchers available at the point
homeless families are ready to be housed.  Mr. Hendrickson will provide
an overview of funding resources that are being used by Hennepin
County's Rapid Exit Program to help families rapidly exit shelters and
return to permanent housing.
 
The one-hour call will consist of a brief presentation, followed by a
discussion period in which questions will be accepted from conference
participants.  The cost of the call is $24.00 per phone line.  To
