On Nov. 20-21, the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV), in partnership with The Home Depot Foundation and Citi Salutes, is hosting the third annual Veterans Access to Housing Summit in Chicago, IL.

The NCHV Housing Summit brings together the major partners in improving access to affordable housing opportunities for homeless and low-income veterans. This two-day interactive training Summit will address the remaining housing challenges in the Five-Year Plan to Prevent and End Veteran Homelessness and provide participants with the opportunity to learn, share and create solutions. Representatives from homeless veteran service providers, corporate partners, charitable organizations and federal agencies will lead engaging and interactive workshops and training sessions.

The Summit will better equip your agency to be an active partner in streamlined service delivery for veterans in need of rapid re-housing assistance and housing stability. It will help improve your organization’s ability to facilitate faster, more efficient housing placement for veterans in your programs. With less than 1,000 days left in the Five-Year Plan, every effort must be made to think creatively about maximizing housing alternatives available in local communities.

The Summit is being hosted at the newly renovated Chicago Hyatt Magnificent Mile Hotel. This hotel offers luxurious, upscale and technologically advanced services in both the guest rooms and meeting space. The reserved room block for the Summit will include complimentary wifi and access to the brand new fitness center and pool area. Reserve your room early, as the reserved room block will sell out quickly.

The Hyatt Magnificent Mile Hotel is located at 633 North Saint Clair Street, Chicago, IL 60611. The phone number is (312) 787-1234.
