2017 Starting at Home Conference

  • 2017 Starting at Home Conference

The inaugural Starting at Home event was a success beyond our wildest expectations, with nearly 300 attendees from across the United States and Canada. In 2017, we hope to continue the momentum by bringing together a variety of visionaries -- from academics and philanthropists to urban planners, policy makers, social service providers, advocates, developers and investors -- to continue a dialogue about the role of affordable housing in building strong and vibrant communities that enable people to prosper.

The rich narrative of life plays out – Starting at Home, and where we live has profound and compelling implications on other conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age. We promise insightful and engaging conversation about this idea and hope to connect with you April 27-28, 2017!
