  • Jan Laskey, Senior Vice President, Community Development Lending Northwest, Bank of America Merrill Lynch


  • Heather Lyons, Director, Corporation for Supportive Housing
  • Kenny LaPoint, Assistant Director, Oregon Housing and Community Services
  • Kelli Larson, Chief Program Officer, Plymouth Housing


Panel discussion will include data on Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) and impacts to addressing homelessness, known ways to target housing interventions for deep impact and what is needed in the community to successfully deliver a PSH policy strategy. Government partners will discuss what is happening behind the scene to streamline and improve systems of coordination, targeting and delivery so that PSH as a priority is executed consistently across different jurisdictions. Another key point will be to ask about coordination between health and housing.  Take-aways for participants include, what changes are happening in the landscape to support PSH and how they can continue to engage in the discussion.
