About this year’s ATI

The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness’ Annual Training Institute (ATI) is Connecticut’s premier capacity-building event for organizations, frontline providers, and partners working to prevent and end homelessness in Connecticut. National and state presenters gather to provide training and information on best practices, promising innovations, and new system-wide initiatives as they relate to ending homelessness. This year’s ATI will be a week-long virtual forum for presenters to share cutting-edge thinking on racial justice, criminal justice, and economic justice in the face of COVID-19.

This year, we seek to explore how we can all come together to build a homeless crisis response system that is just and compassionate while also making the best use of scarce financial resources in the face of a pandemic. We will focus in particular on topics that are on everybody’s minds right now, including how towns and cities respond to rising homelessness in the face of the pandemic among singles, families, youth, and unsheltered populations in towns and cities across our state.

Each day of the week-long event will feature a keynote presentation, up to six panels and workshops, and an hour-long “happy hour” featuring music, provider highlights, and voices of those with lived experience.

Please register today to reserve your spot and receive updates as we add new sessions. You can attend as many workshops as your schedule permits. This promises to be the most exciting ATI ever. Don’t miss it!
