RE:     ?Unbundling? Housing and Services Advocacy Conference


     Plans for the ?Unbundling? Housing and Services Advocacy Conference
are now being finalized.  The conference will take place May 14-15 at
Harvard Law School in Cambridge, MA.  It will begin on May 14 with
registration and a continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m. and adjourn on May 15
at 4:00 p.m.

     The purpose of the conference is to explore issues that have arisen
under the Americans with Disabilities Act around the linking of housing for
people with mental illnesses to compliance with service or treatment
programs.  An impressive array of consumers, advocates, researchers,
providers, and policy makers will gather to address a wide variety of
related topics including homelessness, group homes, tenancy and home
ownership.  Day One will feature workshops on these and other topics.  Day
Two will focus on identifying common themes and establishing several
?advocacy teams? to formulate strategies to promote the ?unbundling? of
housing and services.

     To register for the conference, please return the enclosed form to the
National Resource Center on Homelessness and Mental Illness by April 27.
