Please Maryland Philanthropy Network’s Baltimore Seniors & Housing Collaborative for a discussion on forecasts of the aged homeless population; projected costs associated with the use of shelter, health care, and long-term care by this aged homeless population; proposed housing and service intervention models matched to the varying level of housing and services needs of these subgroups; and potential service cost reductions associated with housing interventions.

All MPN members are invited to hear from the research team: Ariel H.
