ABOUT ICPH

The Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness (ICPH) is a New York City-based policy research organization focused on family homelessness in New York City and throughout the United States. ICPH examines the demographics of this growing population, the challenges these families face in becoming self-sufficient, and the programs that are most effective in helping them transition out of homelessness. The Institute shares their findings in their many reports, research-based books, policy research commentary, and national magazine.

THE EVENT

January 10-12, 2018 | Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan | New York City

Solutions are most effective when shared — especially when it comes to ending homelessness. Join other service providers and big-picture thinkers to learn about the most effective strategies being used to end homelessness across the country. Through a series of talks, keynote luncheons, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities, you'll learn how to bring these strategies to your own work to help children and families succeed.
