This annual conference focuses on the process, challenges, and advantages of creating and working in housing programs that embrace harm reduction—that is, housing that does not require abstinence from risky behaviors as the ticket for admission.

In our 5th annual conference, we will continue to broaden the conversation about harm reduction to include other risky behaviors, new groups of people who could benefit, and a deepening of our skills and understanding. We are also committed to welcoming any interested parties to the table, and encourage those who are curious and new to this compassionate philosophy to join us.  We have resources available for you here to familiarize yourself with the basic principles prior to attending the conference, so that we can focus on tools and techniques to deepen our skills on the day of the conference.
