Illumination Foundation is challenging you to answer a very burning question: “Are we doing enough to end homelessness?”. Join us in learning how bridging the gap between healthcare and our most vulnerable homeless neighbors can deeply influence and provide long-term solutions.

The nation's most influential advocates for the homeless will share their perspective as housing instability hits an all-time high in cities all over the U.S. Dr. Jim O’Connell, Founder and President of Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program and Bobby Watts, CEO of National Health Care for the Homeless Council, two of the most appreciated and well-known advocates for the homeless will join forces to help our local community find solutions to this tangible, inescapable problem.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A panel with both speakers and additional advocates for our most vulnerable homeless neighbors.
