Workshop: Stronger Together: Bridging the Gap Between Resident Services and Property Management

Date: Friday, Oct. 8
Time: 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm PDT (4:30 pm – 5:30 pm EDT)

Panelists:
Elizabeth Carr, Resident Services Program Manager, St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County
Jennifer Cervantes, Compliance Officer, St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County

Description:
Why are they even here? They shouldn’t be getting involved. I can’t share that info with you. You’re not qualified to speak on this issue. They’re only here so we can get funding. Can’t you just go host a potluck?! If you’ve ever said these things about Resident Services (or heard them said about you) then this session is for you! Two years ago, the Resident Services and Property Management departments at St. Vincent de Paul Society of Lane County were neck-deep in mutual misunderstanding and bad habits. Through time, hard work, and a lot of self-examination these groups forged one of the strongest relationships in their agency. Join to hear a panel of Resident Services and Property Management staffers explain the steps they took to create a collaborative partnership that upholds lease compliance while continuing to support tenants and meet them where they are.


Workshop:  Preschools & Housing: Integrating early childhood learning centers in affordable housing development

Date:  Friday, Oct. 8

Time:  1:30 pm – 2:30 pm PDT (4:30 pm – 5:30 pm EDT)

Moderator:     

Brian Stewart, VP Director of Client & Community Relations, Oregon/Washington, PNC Bank

Jilian Saurage Felton, Housing Development Director, Community Partners for Affordable Housing

Rick Ruzicka, Senior Operations & Policy Analyst, Oregon Housing and Community Services

Description:

Recently approved Oregon legislation and a voter approved universal preschool measure in Multnomah County suggest new opportunities for the integration of early childhood learning centers in affordable housing developments. HB 5011 directs OHCS and the Oregon Department of Education Early Learning Division to produce a research study by winter 2022 and then develop a pilot grant proposal to support the co-location of affordable housing and early learning or childcare centers. Housing developers see opportunity to provide a critical resource for residents and neighbors by adding commercial spaces to accommodate early childhood learning centers in new housing developments. Hear from governmental, developer and preschool administrator perspectives on the challenges and opportunities related to expanding childcare services for low-income households throughout Oregon.
