Serving The Whole Child: A Focus on Safe Housing

May 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Connecticut Public and CT Black & Brown Student Union co-host a series about the factors contributing to a child’s success in life.

While educational success is often tied to well-resourced school districts, other factors impact a child’s trajectory like their access to affordable healthcare and healthy food.

Connecticut Public and the CT Black and Brown Student Union (CT BBSU) are partnering to host a series of one-hour conversations that explore what communities and policymakers can do to serve the whole child.

This conversation on May 8 will focus on the importance of safe housing.

The community is invited to attend!

There will be refreshments starting at 6:30 pm in the Garde’s Oasis Room on the second floor. The panel discussion starts at 7 pm with panelists:

  • Sabrina Buckwalter, Story Producer/Reporter at Connecticut Public
  • Margaret Lancaster, Health Program Coordinator at Ledge Light Health District
  • Shanda Easley, Program Manager, Thames River Community Service, Inc.
  • Errold Maurice, Housing Counseling Agency Coordinator at New London’s Homeless Hospitality Center

Moderator: Lucy Nalpathanchil, Connecticut Public

Opening Remarks by Shineika Fareus, Executive Director of CT Black and Brown Student Union (CT BBSU)

This conversation is supported by The William Caspar Graustein Memorial Fund.
