2020 Rural Homeless Conference

April 29-30 | Alex Haley Farm

 

The 2020 Rural Homeless Conference is the nation’s only dedicated rural convening of service providers, leaders, advocates, and consumers working to end homelessness in the United States.

 

There are other challenges that continue to fuel the problems that create homelessness and a scarcity of affordable homes. Families are being displaced and tenants are being evicted at a rate that exceeds the number and availability of homes. Health and societal costs of the burgeoning number of people without homes is bringing corporations and the health sector to the table around the importance of housing as a public good.

  • Community development organizations
  • Health-sector professionals focused on social determinants of health
  • Housing finance professionals
  • Philanthropic leaders working on the intersection of housing and other social issues
  • Government sector innovators and cross-sector collaborators
