     FROM WELFARE TO HOMELESSNESS
     GRASSROOTS DOCUMENTATION OF THE IMPACTS OF WELFARE REFORM
     May 29-30 - Chicago


The National Coalition for the Homeless will sponsor "From Welfare to
Homelessness? Grassroots Documentation of the Impacts of Welfare Reform -
Building A National Advocacy Campaign." The summit will be held May 29-30,
1998 in Chicago, Illinois, at the Quality Inn, 1 South Halstead Street.

Co-sponsored by the Metro Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, the Chicago
Coalition for the Homeless, and the Los Angeles Coalition to End Hunger and
Homelessness, this working summit will provide grassroots organizations,
advocates, researchers, and affected individuals and groups with an
opportunity to begin sharing current knowledge as well as further
developing assessment tools. Our purpose is to shape what we are learning
into an advocacy agenda.

Participants will become aware of what others around the country are doing
to monitor the impact of welfare reform in their communties; increase
knowledge of proven grassroots techniques to assess and document these
impacts on low income and homeless people; develop a common set of tactics
and strategies to communicate what we know to policy makers, the media, and
the general public; and develop an advocacy agenda through the National
Coalition for the Homeless that advocates for changes in welfare policy
that are fundamental to long term family stability.
