Looking to improve your ability to connect people experiencing homelessness to State benefits and social programs? Join TPCH and the Arizona Department of Economic Security for a special one-hour provider forum on OCTOBER 22, 2021- 9:30AM-10:30AM.
DES Benefits and Services: One-Hour Provider Forum
The Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES) is an integrated human services agency that provides critical protective and assistance services to Arizona’s children, adults, and families. DES has five divisions responsible to serving the community:
- Division of Benefits and Medical Eligibility
- Division of Aging and Adult Services
- Division of Developmental Disabilities
- Division of Employment and Rehabilitation Services
- Division of Child Support Services
During this one-hour forum attendees will receive an overview of DES and the 40+ programs and services in the five divisions, plus the Arizona Early Intervention Program (AzEIP). This is an excellent introduction to the agency and an opportunity to meet the division liaisons.
This provider forum is the first in a series of Division focused dialogues related to improving coordination between homeless service providers and DES. Please join us as we work together to develop strategies to serve our community more holistically.
