Moving Forward | Moving Home: What's New? What's Working? What's Next?
The Southeast Institute on Homelessness and Supportive Housing is an incredible opportunity of regional interest and impact convened by the Florida Coalition for the Homeless and the Florida Supportive Housing Coalition. The mission of the Institute is to expand the knowledge and capacity of stakeholders to improve the quality of life of homeless and at-risk individuals throughout the Southeastern United States. This is our sixth year of bringing together State and National experts who will share their knowledge and expertise to help professionals, administrators, government officials, advocates and others meet the challenge of providing quality, affordable, and accessible supportive housing. Each year the Institute has been a remarkable success as participants have indicated the plenary sessions and workshops exceeded their expectations and rivaled the events conducted at the national level.
Florida Coalition for the Homeless
The Florida Coalition for the Homeless (FCH) was founded in 1990 with a mission of eliminating homelessness by empowering, leading, and supporting people who are homeless or at-risk, local coalitions, service providers, and other interested individuals and groups. FCH works to accomplish its mission through education, advocacy, organizing, and networking.
Florida Supportive Housing Coalition
