Housing is a critically important issue in Pinellas County. It is an aspect of our community with some of the most profound inequities and damaging impacts on health. To ground the community in solid data within a health equity framework, we’re releasing a countywide report, “Home: A Pathway to Health Equity Through Housing,” which aims to focus and fuel housing as a priority across the county.
Please join us for a community briefing on the report and a discussion with a panel of advocates, funders and distinguished national housing experts.
- Fred Karnas, Senior Fellow, Kresge Foundation
- Diane Yentel, President and CEO, National Low Income Housing Coalition
- Peggy Bailey, Director of the Health Integration Project, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
Event participants will be asked to share ideas and recommendations for achieving better housing outcomes for Pinellas County residents. We believe this will inspire the community as a whole to solve the housing crisis and recognize its crucial role in ending differences in health in our county.
