Conference on Ending Homelessness
September 29-30, 2022

COEH is an annual event that brings together over 800 people from across the state who are working to end homelessness 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.

This conference is for everyone – whether you are a service provider, a long-time housing justice advocate, an organizer, an elected official, or someone who wants to start learning more about how we can end homelessness in Washington, we extend a warm welcome for you to join us. We will provide multiple spaces for identity-based caucusing to reflect and process with others who share similar identities.

Last year we welcomed Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, Julián Castro, and Dr. Richard Cho to the virtual keynote stage, along with an exciting line up of other speakers, plenaries, and sessions: see the full program.

Licensed social workers will find many opportunities for Continuing Education credits at COEH. Our programs typically offer upwards of 20 CEUs.

Housing Alliance members receive a special discounted rate on conference registration. Learn more about member benefits and joining the Housing Alliance at
