This year marks a quarter century hosting the Housing Ohio conference, the platform for sharing strategies to end homelessness and expand affordable housing in the Buckeye State.

COHHIO Executive Director Bill Faith will open the conference Monday morning with a look at the past, present and future of the fight to end homelessness in our state.

During the Monday morning plenary, Amanda Andere, CEO of Funders Together to End Homelessness, will discuss the growing momentum in the philanthropic community to fight homelessness.

Tuesday’s lightning round plenary highlights a host of innovators discussing a breadth of topics. We welcome renowned speakers from: the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty; St. Joseph Center in Venice, California; Pathways to Housing PA in Philadelphia; the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System; the Lighthouse Sheakley Center for Youth; YMCA of Central Ohio; and Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago.

Throughout Monday and Tuesday, attendees can choose from 30 workshops on a wide range of subjects presented by these and other experts working on the front lines and behind the scenes to tackle homelessness and housing insecurity. During Wednesday’s Housing Institute, we host three intensive, full-day sessions that delve more deeply into the subject matter.
