Network York State Supportive Housing Conference

The New York State Supportive Housing conference is the single best place for community members to learn what is going on in the world of supportive housing and how best to navigate shifting policies, market pressures, and changing tenant needs. It is the largest supportive housing conference in the nation and includes more than 20 workshops, a keynote address, breakfast, lunch, a cocktail reception, and endless opportunities to make friends and network. This year’s conference will take place on June 2, 2022 at the Marriott Marquis Times Square. More information coming soon. Take a look at some of the past conference speakers and workshops.

Awards Gala

Each fall, we celebrate our community and its accomplishments at our annual Awards Gala! The Network’s Gala brings together the supportive housing industry – nonprofit developers, architects, for-profit partners, investors, vendors and government partners in a one-of-a-kind party and networking event. In 2021, we hosted our second virtual gala and celebrated Lamb Insurance, Community Champions and two Outstanding Tenants of the Year. Read more about the gala and our awardees here.

Network Friday Forums

In lieu of our annual statewide supportive housing conference, we are hosting a series of virtual panels called Network Friday Forums. This year, our Friday Forums will take place each Friday in June and will feature two panels each day, the first at 10 AM and the second at 1 PM. We will convene panels of experts on topics ranging from democratizing land use to wage equity in the human services sector. See our upcoming Friday Forums here.

Network Virtual Workshops

The Network is proud to host a variety of virtual workshops that are tailored to the specific needs of the supportive housing community. Examples of workshops include trainings for providers on the redesigned Coordinated Assessment and Placement System with the NYC Human Resources Administration, a guide to New York State’s Part J Rent Regulations presented in partnership with The Legal Aid Society, and a workshop with a representative from Network member Urban Pathways on providing WiFi access to supportive housing residences.
