2023 State of Homelessness Address
Date: April 13
Register for Livestream: Here
Housing Forward invites you to register for the 2023 State of Homelessness Address on April 13th! Our annual State of Homelessness Address is a platform to reflect on the progress made in addressing homelessness, celebrate successes, discuss the plans for future action, and announce the official Point-in-Time (PIT) count data.
The in person event has sold out, but please register for the livestream on Zoom. This insightful event will have contributions from renowned experts in the field and impactful stories from our homeless response system. Together, we can make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring in Dallas and Collin Counties.
