Dear Affordable Housing and Homelessness Prevention Partner:
MaineHousing and the Maine Affordable Housing Coalition are partnering to present the 2013 Maine Affordable Housing Conference -- the only statewide event that attracts leaders in all facets of the affordable housing and homelessness prevention communities. Let’s gather, share ideas, and:
- Discuss the role of housing in Maine’s economy over the next year;
- Talk about current efforts to rapidly re-house families that are homeless;
- Learn the latest on sequestration and how it is affecting our ability to provide housing for individuals and families today and in the near future.
The 2013 Maine Affordable Housing Conference will be Wednesday, October 30th, at the Holiday Inn by the Bay in Portland.
Property owners and managers, developers, builders, architects, engineers, bankers and financiers, real estate agents, social service agencies, homeless shelter providers, and government employees are encouraged to attend.
Our keynote speakers will motivate you. Former U.S. Representative Barney Frank of Massachusetts, who spent his Congressional career advocating to build and preserve affordable rental housing for low-income people as well as being an advocate for the poor and underprivileged, will provide the keynote address. In addition, Barbara Poppe, executive director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, has more than 25 years of experience working to find solutions to prevent homelessness and developing programs to rapidly re-house families.
We look forward to seeing you October 30th to take part in discussions that will help shape Maine’s future.
