Welcome to the Conference on Ending Homelessness!
The 22nd Annual Conference on Ending Homelessness officially beings tomorrow, with the doors opening at 7:30 am. Although this is the 22nd year this conference has been held, this year marks the first conference we've had since the Washington State Coalition for the Homeless and the Washington Low Income Housing Alliance formally joined forces as a single organization.
This conference is an important chance for people from all across Washington who care about ending homelessness to come together, learn new skills, share strategies, and unite behind the idea that we can end homelessness in Washington State.
The introduction letter from Rachael Myers included in the program includes several important ways you personally can get involved in the movement to end homelessness in Washington:
Become an advocacy partner, and let us help your organization engage your community.
Raise the profile of homelessness in elections through nonpartisan voter engagement.
Take action at key moments by responding to our calls to action.

If you want to learn more about the Housing Alliance, the work we do, or if you have any other questions about our organization or the conference - please visit our table by the registration booth. We will have Housing Alliance staff on hand to answer questions throughout the conference.
We hope that all of you enjoy the conference, and that everyone who attends takes home new tools, stronger networks, and renewed enthusiasm for the work that still lays ahead of us. Please be sure to tell us about how the conference went by completing the evaluation forms provided in each session, so that we can make next year's conference even better.
Thank you for participating!
