This Funders Together to End Homelessness webinar highlights the research and evaluation of homelessness prevention conducted by HealthSpark Foundation and Your Way Home Montgomery County, PA. We will learn what prevention means to the Foundation and why those chose to fund this project.

Our panelists will discuss how they went through the process of setting goals for this research, their approach in reaching out to community members and stakeholders for input, and detail their findings. We will have an in-depth discussion on the local replication of prevention models and the pilot programs currently being launched around eviction prevention and school based prevention.  

Join our candid discussion as we look to answer the question, “What is the role of philanthropy in prevention work?”

Panelists Include:
- Russell Johnson, CEO, HealthSpark Foundation
- Barbara Poppe, Barbara Poppe & Associates
- Emma Hertz, Director, Montgomery County Department of Housing and Community Development

This event is intended for private funders, United Ways, Philanthropy Serving Organizations (PSOs), and/or members of Funders Together. Before you invite non-members or non-funders to participate, please contact Stephanie at
