The Annual Training Institute (ATI) is Connecticut’s premier capacity-building event for organizations working to prevent and end homelessness. At this event, CCEH provides training and information on best practices, national and state-level policy changes, and changes in major systems as they relate to ending homelessness.

This year at the 2017 Annual Training Institute 

Thanks to the tireless work of frontline providers and homeless advocates, Connecticut has been recognized nationally for our shared success ending homelessness for our most vulnerable individuals. This year’s Annual Training Institute will serve as celebration of our shared success ending veteran and chronic homelessness, and will pave the way towards ending family and youth homelessness by 2020.

The 2017 Annual Training Institute will feature strategies and cutting-edge approaches that have proven to be successful in preventing and ending homelessness. Past Institute attendees have included practitioners, community leaders, funders, developers, McKinney-Vento liaisons, and individuals currently or formerly experiencing homelessness. This event offers the single-most important forum for state-wide innovation to end homelessness in our communities.
