A couple weeks have now passed since the National Conference on Ending Homelessness and our team has had time to think and discuss ways to implement what we learned. Homelessness is in many of our communities and it was great to see over 2,000 service providers and leaders in one room to discuss new ideas to support our communities. With three full days of seminars and workshops, we gained many new strategies to implement within our organization. We also learned and shared best practices during conversations with other homeless providers from around the country. Our teams look forward to implementing these ideas soon to better our neighbors' lives and our communities.
During the conference, we were honored to hear the visions from keynote speakers updates on how their communities have been preventing and ending homelessness. Videos from the keynotes are now available. Please enjoy the videos from NAEH President & CEO Nan Roman, Senator Kamala Harris, and Senator Cory Booker.
