Conference on Ending Homelessness

We have compiled some information about accessbility provided by the conference venue and hotels that we hope will be useful for planning purposes for conference attendees. If you have questions or feedback about accessibility at the conference, please contact teresac@wliha.org.

Please note that October 10 is the deadline to make accessibility requests, either through the conference registration form or through the survey linked below. After October 10, we may not be able to accommodate accessibility requests.

 

Venue and Hotel Information:

Spokane Convention Center

The Spokane Convention Center is where the conference will take place. In conference session rooms, marked aisle spots will be reserved near the middle of the room for attendees using wheelchairs. Presenters will use microphones and many will use powerpoint slides that will be available for download later on the conference website.

For attendees in the Spokane area, there are 400 parking spaces on the two lower levels, which have elevator access from the garage to the exhibit halls. There is a charge for parking. (For attendees staying in a hotel, parking will be available there.)

All public restrooms in the Spokane Convention Center have ADA capabilities. A gender-neutral bathroom is located at the east end of the Ballroom Lobby. This can also accommodate guests with disabilities and their companion. 

The following rooms will also be available during the conference: 

  • Private lactation room for breastfeeding or pumping
  • Self care space: a quiet room for taking a break from the conference.

Service animals are allowed.

Real-time captioning services will be provided during select breakout sessions and general session plenaries. For more information about captioning, please visit wliha.org/captions.
