NAEH Conference – A First Hand Perspective

In late July, members of our Campaign’s Leadership Team joined federal, state and local policy makers, advocates, and providers at the annual conference of the National Alliance to End Homelessness.

This year’s conference, titled “Reframing the Future,” prominently featured the national 100,000 Homes Campaign and the Housing First model.  The 100,000 Homes Campaign provided tools for every community to accelerate housing placements in the face of economic uncertainty and budget cuts due to sequestration.  They also linked high performing communities with one another to share “the best, most transferable strategies that have propelled them to success.”

At the conference, the national 100,000 Homes Campaign also called 2.5% Club members to the stage during the keynote to celebrate their success and to inspire and invite others to reach their goals.

Conference attendees were encouraged to share thoughts and takeaways via social media.  See the #naeh13 conversation through Twitter here.
