Description

Welcome to the 2018 7 Cities Housing First Conference! This conference is an annual gathering that celebrates the achievements made in our efforts to end homelessness in the province of Alberta. This conference is an opportunity for Housing First practitioners, as well as leaders in the sector, to assemble, create dialogue, and collaboratively focus our efforts on being as effective and efficient as possible to end homelessness in our communities.

The theme of this year’s conference is

“A Decade of Progess, A Lifetime of Change”, with a focus on the four C’s:

  • Celebration - Celebrate our collective impact
  • Communication - Learn from our experiences
  • Collaboration - Share our best practices
  • Creation - Inspire transformative action

We look forward to you joining us to celebrate 10 years of progress and see what future opportunities lie ahead of us.
