2023 MCH Annual Conference

Defining Leadership: Intersectionality & Community-Led Solutions

See you September 18th-19th in beautiful Duluth!

The Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless (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 attend 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.

For over 30 years, the Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless has served as the only statewide member-driven organization advocating for the entire continuum of housing solutions. MCH is comprised of over 100 member organizations throughout the state. With our partners, we advocate for policies to promote housing and economic stability. Our mission is to generate policies, community support, and local resources to end homelessness in Minnesota. To learn more, please visit our website: www.mnhomelesscoalition.org

Reflect & Refresh: Deepening Understanding and Community Care

The conference will be held in Duluth on September 29th-30th. Session presentations must meet the professional and personal development needs of a diverse audience including people new to the work, experienced professionals, and people experiencing housing and economic insecurity.

Minnesota’s collective efforts to end homelessness are unique in the nation. Together, we have built cross-sector, bipartisan partnerships that have changed the narrative about homelessness and led to strategic, targeted investments in affordable housing. MCH supports and defends legislation that protects resources utilized by low-wealth and under-resourced communities, including communities of color and/or Indigenous communities. Our advocacy strives to create collective change through connecting Minnesotans and statewide resources–we will not stop until everyone has a place to call home.

At this time, the Minnesota Coalition for the Homeless is requiring that conference attendees have proof of testing negative for COVID-19 no more than two days prior to the event (either negative test or photo of negative test) or be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (defined as having received 2 doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine). These requirements are subject to change as we monitor the pandemic. The Duluth Entertainment Convention Center includes HVAC protocols that cycle in outside air multiple times per hour to help mitigate risk of contamination.
