Thank You to All Attendees and Sponsors of the 2017 Institute!

The Florida Coalition for the Homeless, in partnership with the State Office on Homelessness, thanks our attendees and sponsors for their support of this year’s Institute. Workshop presentations that have been made available by our presenters can be downloaded HERE.

The Institute took place on November 1-3, 2017 at the Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld, Florida. This year’s theme, Breakthrough to Excellence: Building Bridges to the Future, was a tremendous success, with over 400 attendees from across the State.

Our “State of the Nation” and “State of the State” Plenary sessions featured national and State partners, as well as Keynote Address; “Ending the Criminalization of Mental Illness“, featuring Judge Steven Leifman, Chair, Task Force on Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues in the Court, Supreme Court of Florida.

This year’s pre-conference day was comprised of a variety of half and full day intensive workshop sessions featuring the State Office on Homelessness, the Office on Substance Abuse and Mental Health, The Veteran’s Administration, the Florida Department of Education, and the Florida Housing Finance Corporation, as well as a full day SPDAT training with Orgcode’s Iain De Jong.

The Coalition extends a special THANK YOU to all of our sponsors.  Your support enabled this event to be successful and beneficial to all attendees!
