Open Your Heart recently provided the MCH with funding toward scholarship support for people who have experienced homelessness and housing instability to attend the 2023 MCH Annual Conference.

Providing scholarships to people with lived experience is essential to building a network that is grounded and led by people with lived expertise. The MCH Annual Conference brings together over 600 individuals from across the region working to ensure every Minnesotan has a stable, affordable place to call home. The two-day convening includes about 50 workshops, networking, advocacy, and continuing education opportunities. A broad range of community members attends the event, including individuals who are currently or formerly homeless, direct service providers, policy advocates, tribal members, funders, administrators, federal, state, and county officials, and MCH member organizations.

This year, the conference theme is Defining Leadership: Intersectionality & Community-Led Solutions. The conference will be on Monday, September 18 & Tuesday, September 19, 2023, at the DECC in Duluth. Register HERE by August 31! 

Thank you, MN Coalition for the Homeless, for everything you do!
