As the Alliance’s Annual Conference on Ending Family Homelessness approaches, the office is abuzz with travel plans and last-minute arrangements. We’ve got a full slate of workshopstwo awesome keynote speakers, and an ambitious, but reachable goal: ensuring every family in the U.S. has a home.

Here’s what Alliance staff members are looking forward to:

LaKesha Pope, Youth Program and Policy Analyst:

“I’m excited about my workshops: the Cultural Competency workshop, the Outcomes workshop, and the Young Moms workshop. I think some practical tools will be delivered that people can bring back to their communities.”



Amanda Krusemark, Program and Policy Associate:

“I’m excited to hear from Barb Poppe, the new Director of the Interagency Council on Homelessness. I want to know what she has to say.”


Capacity Building Associate Aisha Williams agrees:

“I’m looking forward to hearing from the new ICH leadership. I’m interested in hearing what their plans are.”


Bill Sermons, Director of the Homelessness Research Institute:

I’m probably most excited about our Data and Performance Simplified workshop. We’re looking at a pretty huge turnout, so it’s a great opportunity to make materials about performance accessible to a wider range of people.



Meghan Henry, Research Associate: 

“I’m most excited about the Affordable Housing Development workshop by NeighborWorks. It’s just so useful. I’m also excited about hearing from people across the country about their experiences this year.”
