National Conference on Ending Family Homelessness

Organization: National Alliance to End Homelessness
Where: Oakland, CA
Date: February 8-9, 2007

Imagine no more families or children homeless. Better still, don?t imagine?look and see it happening.

For the first time since the rise of homelessness more than 20 years ago, communities can articulate a detailed, practical strategy for ending family homelessness, a strategy that works.

Communities are using proven program models and systemic reforms to ensure that children and their parents no longer have to sleep in shelters, in cars, in abandoned buildings, in storm drains, in mini-storage lockers, in caves, in tents, in the open or on the floors or couches of one acquaintance after another for a few days at a time. Communities are solving this vexing and shameful problem in ways that are cost effective. They are setting skepticism aside and moving forward.
