National Center partners presenting on strategic partnerships to end homelessness at the 2016 CSWE APM.

The National Center is a consortium of partners schools of social work across the country. Collaboration among schools is used to increase the attention to homelessness in social work curriculum and strengthen homeless services through research, policy advocacy, and community partnerships. Additionally, seven partner schools serve as regional hub leaders.
