Conference on Ending Homelessness
October 7| $75 – $195
The Conference on Ending Homelessness is an annual event that brings together over 600 people from across the state who are working to end homelessness for learning, networking, advocacy, and community building opportunities. Together, we learn from each other, exchange ideas and share advice, get inspired and re-energized, and organize to grow the movement to end homelessness in Washington and beyond.
Amidst continued requirements around physical distancing and to ensure the safety of our conference attendees, the Washington State Housing Finance Commission and Washington Low Income Housing Alliance will hold their respective fall conferences virtually this year. While we will miss gathering in person with our conference attendees, we are excited to make quality conference programming and networking opportunities accessible to a wider audience than ever before.
This year’s transition also means some changes to the planned collaboration between Housing Washington and the Conference on Ending Homelessness, which was to debut this fall with a shared venue and overlapping programming. Instead, in 2020, both events will cross-promote each other’s virtual programming and will look forward to the launch of a formal partnership in the fall of 2021.
The Conference on Ending Homelessness will take place Wednesday and Thursday, October 7-8, 2020. The live event will offer attendees opportunities to learn from each other, exchange ideas and share advice, get inspired and re-energized, and organize to grow the movement to end homelessness in Washington and beyond. It will offer deeply discounted registration rates and everyone who registers will also have full access to Housing Washington conference programming.
Housing Washington will take place on Tuesday, October 6, 2020. The event will be free to attend, opening doors to expanded access to educational content through on-demand and live sessions. Programming will be focused on impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the affordable housing industry and populations served, including communities of color and others severely impacted.
