2019 Contra Costa Housing Summit

2019 Contra Costa Housing Summit
Last day to register for the Summit is Thursday, 5/30 

Ensuring Opportunity Campaign invites you to join us as Champions of Housing for the 3rd annual Contra Costa Housing Summit!

We believe that all Contra Costa residents should have a safe, affordable and stable place to call home.

Learn about regional and cross-sector approaches to addressing our most pressing housing issues, and be inspired to take action.
• Resident leaders will share how housing has been a launch pad for a brighter future for themselves, their families and their communities;
• A panel will discuss state, regional, and local policy solutions that will have an impact in Contra Costa;
• A second panel will share insights on what is possible to achieve with cross-sector partnerships;
• And communications experts will teach effective messaging and storytelling that will help us engage more partners in housing solutions.

We invite leaders from all sectors and regions of the county to contribute to this important conversation.

We are pleased to convene this event with:
  • RCF Connects (Formerly Richmond Community Foundation)
  • Family Economic Security Partnership (FESP)
  • Multi-faith ACTION Coaltion
  • Contra Costa Interfaith Housing
  • East Bay Housing Organizations (EBHO)
