2020 National Conference on Ending Homelessness and Capitol Hill Day is now CANCELED, Virtual Event Slated for July 15, 2020

The National Alliance to End Homelessness regrettably announces that the National Conference on Ending Homelessness and Capitol Hill Day event, scheduled July 12-15, 2020, is now canceled. The event will instead return to the Washington Marriott Wardman Park hotel from July 11-14, 2021.

Recognizing that countless attendees save and plan for the conference each year in search of best practices, education, training and networking with peers to end homelessness across the country and abroad, the Alliance had hoped to delay this decision in anticipation that COVID-19 concerns might lessen by summer. Continuous monitoring of health advisories and recent statements by the Mayor of the District of Columbia, and neighboring states have made it clear that it would not be safe to move forward with plans for this year.

In lieu of this year’s conference, the Alliance is pleased to announce the 2020 Nationwide Town Hall on Ending Homelessness — the organization’s first live online convening to learn and take action on ending homelessness to be held July 15. This event will bring together service providers, advocates, and consumers to hear from national leaders and collectively engage with members of Congress to advocate for critically needed programs and resources.

Past Conference: 2020 Solutions for Individual Homeless Adults: A National Conference

The Solutions for Individual Homeless Adults will take place February 19-21, 2020 in Oakland, CA. 

Individual adults represent the largest population of people experiencing homelessness. Ending their homelessness requires innovation and adaptation, especially for those affected by the growing unsheltered crisis. The best approaches will not only focus on increasing housing resources and improving the systemic response, they will also demand an understanding of homelessness through other lenses, including age, gender, race, and health. This will require new partnerships with the systems that are implicated when we examine homelessness through those lenses, especially the health care and criminal justice systems.  The Solutions for Individual Homeless Adults conference will explore these emerging perspectives.
