Building Evidence to Promote Stable Housing
A LEO Matchmaking Conference
The 2017 LEO Matchmaking Conference: Building Evidence to Promote Stable Housing will gather researchers, social service providers, and funding organizations in order to advance the dialogue on identifying and evaluating effective housing and homelessness programs. The primary goal of the conference is to lay the groundwork for a number of large-scale research projects that would provide rigorous evidence of program impact in order to advance research, improve programs and inform policy.
Effective, evidence-based programs and policies that promote housing stability are essential for improving the well-being of those in need and reducing inequality of access and stability. This conference will bring researchers and providers together to generate such evidence.
Dates: The conference will begin with a lunch on Thursday, June 8 at 12:00 EST. The conference will come to a close on Friday, June 9 at 3:00 EST.
Lodging: Conference guests will be staying at the Inn at Saint Mary's, adjacent to Notre Dame's campus (http://www.innatsaintmarys.com). Shuttles will run from the Inn to transport guests to conference meeting locations. On Thursday, shuttles will leave from the Inn at 11:15 AM and 11:30 AM. On Friday morning, shuttles will leave from the Inn at 8:00 AM and 8:15 AM.
Travel: South Bend International Airport is located 5 miles from Notre Dame's campus (10-15 minute taxi ride). Chicago airports (both Midway and O'Hare) are approximately 2-2.5 hours west of campus. We reccommend renting a car for any travel to Chicago. Keep in mind, Chicago is on central time, whereas, Notre Dame is on eastern time.
