A message from the Treatment, Housing, & Recovery Strategy Area

Call rescheduled for Wednesday, March 24th at 1pm ET
Greetings, current and hopefully soon to be members of the Treatment, Housing, and Recovery Strategy Area! While on hiatus, we have had ample opportunity to reflect on the way forward for our group. It occurred to us that the fundamental question at the beginning and end of so many deflection related conversations, "Deflect to what?", has yet to be adequately answered.  
It is more critical than ever that we start creating meaningful answers or pathways to solutions, or the deflection movement might collapse under the weight of unmet expectations. The November elections have opened the door for potential generational changes in policy. 
To get there, we need new folks, including those with "boots on the ground" experience and fresh ideas to join us in open dialogue. Our next call is scheduled for Wednesday, March 24th at 1pm ET. Calls will be recurring monthly on the fourth Wednesday. Questions? Email Nikki Munoz,
