Transforming ideas into impact: join us at the next Learning Exchange to dive into housing and medical respite

We’re excited to invite you to our next Learning Exchange for Thriving Communities meeting where we’re diving into two critical pillars of a person’s health and wellbeing: housing and medical respite care. Together, we’ll be creating connections for action.

Our goal is simple yet ambitious: to transform our collective learning into concrete steps towards change. Your feedback, ideas, and insights will be used to help guide the development of, and recommendations for, a health equity improvement plan for the central western Washington region. And most importantly, you’ll be able to connect with others who care about this issue and who bring their own unique perspectives and leverage points to the table.

This meeting is focused on creating real, meaningful impact in our communities. By participating, you'll be contributing to a collective effort to address health disparities and work towards a future where everyone, regardless of their circumstances, has the opportunity to live a healthy, thriving life.

What you can expect at June's meeting

Panel discussion: Hear from local leaders who are at the forefront of addressing housing and respite needs in our region. Gain valuable perspectives and insights into current initiatives, challenges, and opportunities. Panelists include:

  • Kimberly Stoll-French, Housing and Community Services Director, CCAP

  • Patty Howard, Associate Pastor and Associate Director of Community Services, Gather Church

Interactive breakout sessions: Following the panel discussion, you'll have the chance to participate in smaller group discussions hosted by each of the panelists. This is an excellent opportunity to delve deeper into specific topics, exchange ideas, and learn from fellow community members.
