Conference on Ending Homelessness
October 6-8, 2021

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.

We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, Julián Castro, and Dr. Richard Cho to the virtual keynote stage this year, and have an exciting line up of other speakers, plenaries, and sessions in store: see the full program here.

If you’re a social worker, you will find many opportunities for Continuing Education credits – and, since your registration includes access to session recordings, you can access even more content and get even more CE credits after the conference is over.

Registration is open! Visit
