On Friday May 17, 2013, one hundred leaders from 18 of NJ’s 21 counties spent the day at Bristol Meyers Squibb in Plainsboro at the Changing the System to End Family Homelessness Conference.

The event was co-sponsored by the Mercer Alliance to End Homelessness (Mercer Alliance) and Monarch Housing Associates (Monarch). The NJ Housing Mortgage Finance Agency (NJHMFA), Investors Bank and TD Bank underwrote the event. The participants left the event ready to end family homelessness in their communities.

These are links to the PowerPoint s and handouts from the conference. All are provided in PDF format.

During the event reference was made to a video produced by the Gates Foundation that had inspired many to commit to ending family homelessness. We are re-sharing that video.
