2014 Missouri Housing Summit logo

The fourth annual Missouri Housing Summit is a two-day conference to be held at the Lodge of the Four Seasons in Lake Ozark, Missouri, on July 9-10, 2014. This conference is sponsored and facilitated by the Missouri Department of Mental Health Housing Unit and the Community Initiatives staff of the Missouri Housing Development Commission, with significant additional support from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines, Bank of America, ND Consulting Group, and the Missouri Workforce Housing Association.

The Housing Summit will be a hands-on series of workshops and discussions that will help agencies seeking to connect with the planning, development and management resources and knowledge they need to develop and operate much-needed bricks-and-mortar supportive housing for people with special needs and disabilities.

This year's Missouri Housing Summit will once again be held in collaboration with the Missouri Workforce Housing Association's conference, which begins on July 10th at the Lodge of the Four Seasons. The Housing Summit's closing plenary session and luncheon will also be the opening of the Workforce Housing Association's annual conference.

Who Should Attend

Housing developers, disability and mental health service providers, community development corporations (CDCs), community housing development organizations (CHDOs), and non-profits interested in developing housing. If your agency has seriously considered developing its own supportive housing services but doesn't know where to start, this conference is for you.
