As the Alliance’s Annual Conference on Ending Family Homelessness approaches, the office is abuzz with travel plans and last-minute arrangements. We’ve got a full slate of workshops, two awesome keynote speakers, and an ambitious, but reachable goal: ensuring every family in the U.S. has a home.
Here’s what Alliance staff members are looking forward to:
“I’m excited about my workshops: the Cultural Competency workshop, the Outcomes workshop, and the Young Moms workshop. I think some practical tools will be delivered that people can bring back to their communities.”
“I’m excited to hear from Barb Poppe, the new Director of the Interagency Council on Homelessness. I want to know what she has to say.”
“I’m looking forward to hearing from the new ICH leadership. I’m interested in hearing what their plans are.”
I’m probably most excited about our Data and Performance Simplified workshop. We’re looking at a pretty huge turnout, so it’s a great opportunity to make materials about performance accessible to a wider range of people.
“I’m most excited about the Affordable Housing Development workshop by NeighborWorks. It’s just so useful. I’m also excited about hearing from people across the country about their experiences this year.”
