2017 will mark Ohio’s 4th 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.  With breakfast, lunch, and breaks provided each day, the conference also offers plenty of opportunities to network with others from around the state and country.  The agenda includes diverse sessions to choose from – there’s lots for everyone!  Here are some highlights:
