The Community Empowerment Fund, which is a student organization that uses relationship-based support to assist community members to work towards their housing, employment, and financial goals, will be hosting the 2019 Summit on Homelessness and Poverty from March 1-3, 2019, in North Carolina.
For more information, you can visit the site for the Summit on Homelessness and Poverty or look at their website here. Last year, students at Brown University held the first inaugural Summit on Homelessness and Poverty. In doing so, they brought together a coalition of student organizations from across the country dedicated to dismantling systems that perpetuate hunger, homelessness, and poverty. This year, Duke and UNC will be hosting the Summit.
You can register here. They can also provide transportation/accommodation scholarships for students who might have economic barriers to attending the conference. Be sure to tell your students about this amazing opportunity!
