This isn't a break from your work to end homelessness— it's a turbo boost.


Join us at Detroit's beautiful Cobo Center for two transformational days designed to strengthen and equip your work to end homelessness.

This isn't a traditional conference— it's a multi-sector innovation session. Come pressure test your best thinking with leaders in healthcare, design, policy and movements for racial justice.

Amazing keynotes will help you replenish your resolve, and world-class trainings and workshops will equip you with new problem-solving approaches to take back to your community.

Three action-packed learning tracks

  • New Problem Solving Toolkit (Developing key skills in Quality Improvement, Human Centered Design, High-Stakes Facilitation and Data Analytics)

  • Best Practices for Ending Homelessness (Content-level training for implementing best practice interventions on the ground)

  • Taking Action on Structural Racism (Awareness, analysis, and system-wide action for equity)

Built-In Built for Zero Learning Session

If you are representing a Built for Zero Collaborative community, your conference experience will also include a built-in learning session. Come ready to set goals and build a clear action plan.

You won't just deepen your knowledge of housing and homelessness, you'll gain new skills in areas like human centered design and data analytics— skills you can apply to any problem for the rest of your career.


Don’t miss two days of inspiring keynotes, world-class workshops, and endless opportunities to share ideas and develop relationships.
