Calling for Proposals
The Institute for Children, Poverty, and Homelessness invites service providers, practitioners, policy makers, homeless and formerly homeless individuals, advocates, and researchers to submit presentation proposals for the Beyond Housing 2018 Conference to be held January 10-12, 2018.
Conference presentations will include concurrent sessions, workshops, and panels and will provide an opportunity to build bridges across the field of family homelessness, helping colleagues from all backgrounds to imagine new and dynamic ways to reduce the impact of poverty and homelessness on children and families. Our goal is to share best practices and inspire innovative solutions.
The millions of children and their parents who experience homelessness every year are served by an innovative-minded and caring group of service providers, educators, policy makers, and analysts who are always trying new methods to prevent or mitigate the impacts of homelessness on families. The solutions developed in local communities can have widespread impacts when shared across the country.
Session formats are flexible, and we encourage proposals that are interactive and explore the issues from innovative points of view.
Lead presenters will receive complimentary registration. All additional co-presenters will receive a discounted registration of $75.
The deadline for submission is June 19, 2017.
Accepted submissions will be notified by September 8, 2017.
Sign up for our mailing list and/or like Beyond Housing on Facebook to receive updates.
For the more than 140,000 students in New York City who have been homeless, the impact of housing instability is all too real. These children are not only struggling with maintaining a place to sleep, but also attending school, succeeding academically, and accessing supports for their additional educational and behavioral needs. The 2017 Atlas of Student Homelessness in New York City provides an in-depth look at the educational outcomes of homeless students.
