Meet with your state and local policy makers to build relationships and proclaim as people of faith that Every One Needs a Home!  The session will consist of short state and local policy presentations.  Business leaders and constituents will have the opportunity to meet with their legislators and local policy makers, ask questions, and dialogue about housing and other issues of concern.

A continental breakfast will be provided.

After presentations, the attendees will be able to visit tables on housing.  Gene Nicolelli, Certified Aging - in - Place Specialist (CAPS) certified by the National Association of Home Builders, and Carol Woehrer from Think Again MN will have a table.  Their display will  explain the civil right of older residents to have a large bathroom with grab bars and other home features which enable them to live in place when using a wheelchair, how to achieve that at low cost by requiring all new multi and single-family residences to be built using Universal Design, and how Universal Design housing can substantially reduce health care costs.
