The Southern Conference on Homelessness and Housing (formerly Housing Works!) is an opportunity for affordable housing developers and providers, supportive service providers, practitioners, social workers, elected officials, researchers, and those who have experienced housing instability or homelessness to come together to address the ongoing issues of poverty and the lack of safe, decent, and affordable housing in our region. This conference provides a venue for participants to collaborate with new partners in an effort to address these issues in their communities. The 2019 conference will highlight best practices to reduce and eliminate homelessness, as well as focus on the need for new affordable housing opportunities in the Southern region.
