 Conference on Ending Homelessness

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.

You can access powerpoint slides from this year's conference breakout sessions on the program page of the conference website.

Next year, the Conference on Ending Homelessness (Oct 7-8) is excited to partner with the Housing Washington Conference (Oct 6-7). Stay tuned for more information on joint registration and sponsorship opportunities!
