The Southern Conference on Homelessness and Housing (SCHH) is an opportunity for housing developers, homeless program managers, case managers, homeless advocates, state and local government representatives, providers of public and mental health services, and people with lived expertise to come together to address the ongoing issues of poverty and the lack of safe, decent, and affordable housing in our region. This conference will provide educational and training opportunities designed to improve housing and social service options for vulnerable individuals, including persons experiencing homelessness, the aging population, youth, veterans, LGBTQIA+, survivors of domestic violence and/or sexual assault, persons living with HIV/AIDS, persons with disabilities and consumers with mental illness.

The theme of the 2021 SCHH is The Pathway Home: Systems Change to Transform Lives. We know that safe, stable, affordable, and accessible homes keep families healthy, kids in school, and help people find employment. While the COVID-19 pandemic has increased the number and scope of obstacles to accessing housing, it has also offered communities the opportunity and resources to change the way we design and deliver needed services to be more person-centered and equitable. Together, we can discover best practices and explore innovative approaches to address housing challenges and develop sustainable and inclusive communities.
