Save the Date! Housing Ohio 2023 is scheduled for April 11 – 13!

Housing Ohio 2023 will be COHHIO’s first-ever hybrid conference with both in-person and online options!

Housing Ohio is COHHIO’s annual conference to convene advocates, practitioners, and experts to explore new and innovative approaches to ending homelessness and expanding access to affordable housing in Ohio.

After two virtual conferences in 2021 and 2022, we will return to a live event at the Sheraton Columbus at Capitol Square, our long-time venue, with in-person plenaries, workshops, exhibit tables, and networking opportunities that has made this a must-go conference for nearly three decades. We will also have a virtual Homelessness and Housing 101 track geared toward entry-level and frontline staff. Stay tuned – more details to come in early 2023!

Spanning three half-days from April 11 to 13, Housing Ohio 2022 creates the space to reflect on how Covid has fundamentally altered the lives of low-income Ohioans and those who serve them. While the pandemic has inflicted untold suffering, it has also unleashed a flood of new resources to address the old problems of homelessness and housing insecurity. This year’s conference highlights ways we can leverage Covid relief funds to strengthen housing stability in our communities, incorporate the wisdom of people with lived experience into these solutions, and elevate the public’s understanding of homelessness.

Plenary speakers include the National Alliance to End Homelessness’s Nan Roman and COHHIO’s Bill Faith – legends of the housing movement who have both recently announced plans to retire this year. We’ll also hear from the new U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness Executive Director Jeff Olivet, National Coalition for the Homeless Executive Director Donald Whitehead, Kaleidoscope Youth Center Executive Director Erin Upchurch, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ Ann Oliva, Tiffany Haynes, with the National Youth Forum on Homelessness, Invisible People Founder Mark Horvath, KTown For All Co-Founder Mike Dickerson, and former USICH Director Barbara Poppe.

The Housing Ohio conference is made possible with major support from the Ohio Capital Corporation for Housing, the Ohio Department of Development, the Ohio Housing Finance Agency, and Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services.
