The event is a part of ONE|NB’s Fresh Fridays, a monthly gathering for practitioners, community members, and policymakers interested in community development.

“Building homes is the first step. However, ensuring our residents have access to supports that will help them remain stably housed is just as important,” said Jennifer Hawkins, President and CEO of ONE|NB. “I am looking forward to our upcoming Fresh Friday as it is a great opportunity for practitioners to share what they’ve learned about how to best ensure our neighbors thrive.”
Attendees will hear from panelists with experience working in and across resident services, asset management, and property management at various nonprofit housing providers in the region.
