Are you just getting started in the homelessness field? Not sure what all these acronyms mean? Wondering why everyone keeps talking about the systemic response to homelessness?

*This session provides a broad overview of homelessness and is targeted to people who have been working on homelessness at the program, administrative, or policy levels for one year or less. Topics covered include the latest data on homelessness and best practices and policies to end it. Attendees will leave the session with a stronger general understanding of homelessness and the most effective ways to address it that will improve their entire conference experience.

*To ensure enough space in this pre-conference session for people who are new to the homelessness field, registrants who have been involved in homelessness work for more than one year are strongly encouraged to attend other, more advanced and topical pre-conference sessions.
