15th Annual New York State Supportive Housing Conference

Keynote Address

Below, see how the 15th Annual Supportive Housing Conference kicked off the largest gathering of the supportive housing community ever with a deeply inspiring keynote address from StoryCorps’ Founder and President Dave Isay. Echoing StoryCorps’ mission and supportive housing’s moral core, Mr. Isay reminded participants that every individual matters. He also said that of the hundreds of keynotes he delivers, this one had meant the most to him personally. 

The morning also featured remarks from retired Brigadier General Dr. Loree Sutton, Commissioner of the NYC Mayor’s Office of Veterans Affairs, and a rousing welcome from Executive Director Laura Mascuch. At the outset of the day, Network’s Chair William Traylor shared his own story about his personal history and connection to the world of supportive housing.
