Members of Opening Doors Fairfield County attended the National Alliance to End Homelessness Conference held in Washington D.C. They were joined by more than 2,000 service providers, government leaders, advocates and consumers attending workshops covering the most pressing issues in ending homelessness.
Highlights of the three days included keynote addresses from Alliance President and CEO, Nan Roman and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson. ODFC members also heard an inspiring speech from Congresswoman Maxine Waters, the Ranking Member of the House Financial Services Committee.
Some members of ODFC also participated in Capitol Hill visits to send a strong message that ending homelessness in Fairfield County must be a priority. Meetings were held with both Senator Chris Murphy and Senator Richard Blumenthal’s Offices.
