Dorian "DiDi" Bess
01:37:48
Yes sister tell the truth come on
Judith Clark
01:37:49
That’s important. Reentry has to begin when we start our bids, not at the end. If we are traumatized and isolated for years, and then go through a 90 day program, what is that supposed to do?
Anisah Sabur
01:38:55
Sending so much love to you sister!

Everyone should advocate for a new commitment to the Governor’s Empire State Supportive Housing Initiative. The first 5 years of funding has been exhausted and we need the next 5 years in next year’s budget!
Kristen Edwards, WCJP (she/her)
01:55:44

Beriza Cantor
01:59:50
Hi. What housing options do women have that are completing SUD treatment?
Judith Clark
02:03:00
Yes, that has been our experience at Hour Children. We’ve been able to give vouchers to women, but none of them have every been able to secure apartment with them!
Sister Eli, MSW
02:03:05
Staten Island and far rock away are a little more affordable
Sister Eli, MSW
02:03:22
$1265 and $1323 vouchers are hard to place though
Angela Scott
02:03:51
Women completing SUD treatment are eligible for supportive housing via the 2010e application, under Pop F. However the number of those units are limited.
Debralee Johnson
02:04:19
Can you share your information?
Beriza Cantor
02:04:35
Thank you Angela

Judith Clark
02:05:14
With vouchers, it’s not only the price of apartments but also that landlords discriminate against people using vouchers
Speaker: Andrea Kretchmer
02:05:34
For anyone who needs it, my email is andrea@xenolithpartners.com. Please do reach out and we'll connect folks with the workforce and hiring programs.
Sister Eli, MSW
02:05:42
we have been doing better with reporting brokers and landlords
Speaker: Rebecca Engel
02:06:22
if anyone feels like they have been a victim of housing discrimination, please feel free to email me at rengel@fortunesociety.org
Judith Clark
02:07:40
Anna Calabrese, you rock!
Kristen Edwards, WCJP (she/her)
02:07:58
Thank you Anna. We appreciate your work. WCJP would love to talk more with you about trying to gain direct access to CityFHEPs for our women and families. Seems counterintuitive for them to have to go into the shelter system in order to get a voucher.
Speaker: Anna Calabrese
02:08:29
of course Kristen. I totally agree. Let's schedule a call for next week?
Kristen Edwards, WCJP (she/her)
02:08:56
Yes thanks. Will email you.
Speaker: Tanisha Hines
02:09:10

Angela Scott
02:12:51
Individuals returning to the community from incarceration (90 days or longer) are not eligible for vouchers/housing subsidies as per HUD's definition of homelessness
Speaker: Tanisha Hines
02:13:17
Thank you,Angela for this point
Judith Clark
02:15:21
So true, Kendra
DARLENE JACKSON
02:15:28
Certainly need deep preventative services as well
Tanya Pierce
02:16:00
From the Landlord perspective, if the landlord had direct access to the CBO and HRA. A landlord may consider working with people with vouchers. Work on changing the marketing strategy.
Speaker: Tanisha Hines
