    NEW THIS YEAR (PLEASE READ!):

    • NAME BADGE ADMISSION "TICKET"
      In an effort to streamline registration and check-in at the conference, you will receive your conference name badge in the mail within ten (10) business days of receipt of payment of registration.
      YOUR NAME BADGE IS YOUR ADMISSION TICKET TO THE CONFERENCE. All badges include a bar code unique to each paid registrant which will be scanned upon entry. Your badge MUST be on your person at all times throughout the entirety of both days of the conference in order to be admitted.

    • WHAT IF I LOSE MY NAME BADGE?
      You are responsible for your name badge, and those of anyone else you register. You may request a re-print to be mailed to you at the cost of $5.00 per badge up until Friday, September 22nd, 2017. All replacement badge orders after that time must be requested at the door the day of the event and may be subject to a $5.00 replacement charge.

    • NO MORE ONE-DAY TICKET SALES
      Because we work hard to deliver a full conference experience, all sales are for the entirety of the 2-day conference. 

    • WHAT IF I CAN NO LONGER ATTEND THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE, OR ONLY ATTEND ONE DAY?
      All name badges will come with an alternate badge -- simply register the individual attending the first day, and then write-in the name of your alternate attendee for the second day and they're all set for conference admission.
      PLEASE NOTE: All badges include a bar code unique to each paid registrant which will be scanned upon entry. In the event that both the registrant and the alternate badge are checked-in on-site, i.e. two people attempt to attend under ONE paid registration, be advised you WILL be invoiced for the additional conference entry at the Non-Member rate.

    • CANCELLATIONS TO ANNUAL CONFERENCE
      Cancellation of paid registrations to the annual conference will be refunded in full if received IN WRITING to info@azhousingcoalition.org no later than Friday, September 22nd, 2017. 
      NO REFUNDS WILL BE PROCESSED AFTER THIS DATE.

    National Hunger
    & Homelessness
    Awareness Week

    November 11th - 19th, 2017

    In partnership with the National Coalition for the Homeless, AZCEH annually observes National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week the week before Thanksgiving.

    What is the SPDAT?

    The SPDAT is an evidence-informed approach to assessing an individual’s acuity, which is currently in use in more than 100 communities across the U.S. and Canada, helping to improve intake processes and use existing resources to help serve individuals in gaining access to programs and services which are best aligned to end their homelessness. The assessment tool, across multiple components, prioritizes whom to serve next and why, while concurrently identifying the areas in the person's life where support is most likely necessary in order to maintain housing stability.

    Recently updated to Version 4, the SPDAT uses 15 dimensions to determine an acuity score that will help inform professional Permanent Supportive Housing and/or Rapid Re-Housing practitioners about the following:

    • Single adults who will benefit most from Housing First
    • Single adults who will benefit most from Rapid Re-Housing
    • Single adults who are most likely to end their own homelessness with little to no intervention on your part
    • Which areas of the person’s life that can be the initial focus of attention in the case management relationship to improve housing stability
    • How individuals are changing over time as a result of the case management process
    Building on the practical foundations of education, training, and work experience, trainees will learn best practices in SPDAT administration for single adults, as well as the significance of assessment and prioritization to service connection and housing stability, supported by Housing-Based Case Management core concepts and techniques.

    REQUIRED PRE-REQUISITES
