Conference on Ending Homelessness
coming October, 2023

Preparations are underway for the 2023 Conference on Ending Homelessness (COEH)!

COEH is the largest annual gathering of people working to end homelessness in Washington. For the 2022 conference, we gathered virtually from across the state 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.
