Free FLC Research Symposium
Wednesday, August 14 | 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. | World Center Marriott | Orlando
An estimated 28,378 individuals and 43,592 families with children in Florida are homeless. Cities of all sizes share in the challenges of homelessness and have a significant role in efforts to end homelessness for their citizens. Learn about the different faces of your homeless population and the specific strategies needed to address the unique challenges facing each group. Join us for the Florida League of Cities Summer Research Symposium as we examine innovative programs and collaborations in housing and social services used at municipal and regional levels to address the needs of various homeless populations. This research symposium is designed for city managers, community housing and development staff, and elected leaders. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the issues surrounding homelessness and learn about strategic approaches to ending homelessness used by the most successful communities. The event is free for League members and research partners, but pre-registration is required. Click here to learn more about our speakers, the individual topics and how to register.
