    This event has been canceled due to inclement weather.

    Please join the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) for a discussion of best practices for providing difficult news to clients seeking affordable housing. The forum will incorporate information and tools from the newly published Best Practices for Giving Bad News  guide, produced by the DRCOG Area Agency on Aging, Brothers Redevelopment, Inc. and Mile High United Way’s 2-1-1 community referral service. The discussion will equip community agency professionals to support each other as they’re confronted with the challenge of delivering bad news about nearly impossible-to-find affordable housing in the region.

    After the forum, participants will be invited to experience Searching for Home: Homelessness in Colorado History, a new exhibit at the History Colorado Center. The exhibit invites people “to reflect on life without the shelter, healthcare, safety and relationships provided by stable housing." (exhibit tour $10)
