January 15-17: Beyond Housing – A National Conversation on Child Homelessness and Poverty

It’s never too early to be looking ahead.  The Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness (ICPH) is inviting service providers, practitioners, policymakers, homeless and formerly homeless individuals, researchers, and members of the media to its next national conference, Beyond Housing. 

The conference will be taking place at the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan in New York City from January 15 to 17.  Group hotel rates are available to purchase until December 18.

Conference sessions will provide an opportunity to build bridges between service providers and policymakers, and between practitioners and researchers, helping colleagues across the field to imagine new and dynamic ways to reduce the impact of poverty and homelessness on children and families.
