Tune in Friday, 9 AM-10 AM, NHPR's "Exchange" -- focus on future efforts to end homelessness in Manchester and state-wide.

Now that the city of Manchester has its own Ten Year Plan to End Homelessness, what are the next steps in implementing that Plan and tackling the issues that cause homelessness? To discuss this question, NH Public Radio’s Laura Knoy will feature two of NH’s leaders in homelessness prevention on her program, The Exchange: Mary Sliney, Executive Director of The Way Home, a Manchester-based twenty year old non-profit organization, and Keith Kuenning, Executive Director of the NH Coalition to End Homelessness . Manchester’s Mayor Guinta also will call in to the show to add the City’s perspective. The program will address the roles of the agencies in working with the City and their next steps to help alleviate homelessness. Manchester’s experience in implementing the Plan could well have a significant impact on state-wide policy through Mary and Keith’s involvement with the Governor’s Interagency Council on Homelessness.
