LITTLE VILLAGE | Housing issues in Johnson County will be the subject of a panel discussion at the Iowa City Library on Sunday afternoon. The discussion will feature Crissy Canganelli, executive director of Shelter House, realtor and commercial real estate appraiser Casey Cook and Tracy Hightshoe, director of Neighborhood and Development Services for Iowa City.
Topics will include efforts to address homelessness in Johnson County. Shelter House, an Iowa City nonprofit that serves the needs of the homeless, is starting a major new phase on a project that uses the Housing First approach. Housing First prioritizes providing stable, long-term housing for individuals experiencing homelessness. The housing is intended to provide a secure platform that allows other problems to be dealt with.
