2023 National Health Care for the Homeless Conference & Policy Symposium
May 15 @ 7:00 am – May 18 @ 12:30 pm
The 2023 National Health Care for the Homeless Council (NHCHC) annual Conference & Policy Symposium will be hosted May 15-18, 2023, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront. NHCHC is pleased to continue the 2022 theme “Toward Health and Belonging,” with this year’s theme “Toward Justice.”
Growing inequities and criminalization of homelessness are worsening in our society and threaten the lives of people experiencing homelessness. In 2023, we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the National Consumer Advisory Board and the people with lived expertise of homelessness who have been leaders in the movement to end homelessness. In this conference, we want to highlight the amazing work of these leaders and discuss the successes and challenges of creating Consumer Advisory Boards, hiring people with lived expertise, and program development by and for impacted communities. We know that people closest to the problems are those closest to the solutions.
Justice is core to the mission of the Council as we work to build an equitable and high-quality health care system. Health care is neither equitable nor high-quality if it is not accessible and person-centered.
At HCH2023, we want to explore and demonstrate how providing health care to people without homes, addressing the effects of homelessness, and working to prevent and to end homelessness is a matter of justice.
