ANNUAL CONFERENCE: October 2nd & 3rd, 2017
Last year, for the first time ever, we SOLD OUT! We were excited to host over 550+ attendees representing 103 agencies or organizations across Arizona over the course of our two-day conference.
In 2016, all three of Arizona's Continua of Care -- Maricopa County, Tucson/Pima, and Balance of State -- were represented in both attendance and those presenting. Just shy of half of our attendance -- 52 agencies/organizations out of 103 attending -- were made up of direct-service providers, working to aid and assist Arizona's most vulnerable in their journeys towards housing stability. Representatives from 10 municipalities and municipal agencies were present, along with representation from three of Arizona's four Council of Governments, numerous county and state agencies and programs, and local law enforcement representing Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, and Peoria. We were also excited to have the Arizona Department of Education's 130 Homeless School Liaisons back with us this year, coming from schools and districts from all four corners of the state.
WHERE & WHEN: Convene with Arizona's top homeless and housing experts
WHY: To seek an Arizona devoid of homelessness
This conference, the only statewide conference of
its kind solely meant for homeless service professionals and advocates, brings
together professionals from across Arizona, and the country, for a two-day
event which is meant to energize and allow for idea and information sharing
across Arizona about best practices in ending homelessness.
Each year, we work hard to ensure the conference features dynamic storytellers and prominent leaders in the field of ending homelessness, offering exciting networking opportunities to the more than 500 professionals who attend the two-day event each year. Attendees represent all corners of the state, coming from diverse backgrounds, including direct-service providers, program managers, executives and board members, advocates, school liaisons, policy makers, and individuals concerned with the issues of homelessness in Arizona.
