This year’s presenter is Ms. Rosanne Haggerty who in 1991 established Common Ground Community (www.commonground.org), which has become the preeminent supporting housing provider in the country and an innovative developer of strategic solutions for the problem of homelessness. The organization’s view that homelessness is solvable rests on a strategy of moving long-term homeless people from the streets and shelters directly into housing, and on preventing homelessness by assisting vulnerable people to secure stable housing at moments of crisis. In 2001, Rosanne received a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation “genius award,” in recognition of her work. This event is sponsored by the Thomas Merton Center. Contact Dr. Paul Pearson for more information about this event.
