More than 200 people are expected Friday for the Finger Lakes Housing Consortium’s next housing summit, which will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Ramada Geneva Lakefront.
The consortium is a collaboration of four area housing consortia. The event will include non-profit and government agencies from Ontario, Seneca, Wayne, and Yates counties to discuss housing and healthy families.
“Specific to this event, without stable and affordable housing it is difficult for families to focus on health issues, family issues, doctor appointments, and medication management, resulting in unnecessary hospitalizations and more,” said Marty Teller, executive director of the Finger Lakes Area Counseling & Recovery Agency, a member of the consortium.
Those in attendance will discuss concerns about housing, opportunities, and needs in the Finger Lakes region. The keynote speakers will be Cheryl Martin of Coordinated Care Services, Inc., a well-known trauma informed care expert, and Stuart Mitchell, president and CEO of Pathstone Corporation and a longtime leader in housing service.
