Ohio Recovery Housing Conference: A Time to Build

Strategies on Expansion, Sustainability and Advocacy

April 2-4, 2018  /  Marriott University Area  /  Columbus


April 2-4, 2018

2018 will mark Ohio’s 5th Annual Recovery Housing Conference, and we’re expecting over 250 recovery housing operators and other people who support the work.  While most participants have been providing recovery housing for a long time, others are newcomers.  No matter what, each will find plenty to learn at this gathering which is the only opportunity in the Midwest dedicated to better understanding the research, best practices, and policies that influence the development, financing, and operation of quality recovery housing.

Conference attendees may add a pre-conference workshop on April 2, 2018 from 1:00PM to 5:00PM presented by Jason Howell, Executive Director of RecoveryPeople.  This interactive pre-conference workshop will provide recovery housing operators with information, tools and resources on how to build peer leadership and develop staff in recovery housing.

The agenda of the full two-day conference includes diverse sessions to choose from – there’s lots for everyone!  Here are some highlights:
