Join Host Nicole Ganier, Vice President of Operations for Equus Workforce Solutions, as she discusses the life-changing work Equus Regional Director Stacia Peters and her team are doing to combat homelessness and help individuals become work-ready through California’s San Diego County emergency non-congregate sheltering program. Learn how Stacia and her team are helping high-risk homeless individuals and their families become stable and self-sufficient and find placement in permanent or regular housing as well as connect them with workforce services and reunify them with family members during the pandemic. Stacia shares how her team is using the Housing First model from the National Alliance to End Homelessness that prioritizes providing permanent housing to people experiencing homelessness, thus ending their homelessness and serving as a platform from which they can pursue personal goals and improve their quality of life.
