The International Conference of the Famvin Homeless Alliance will take place in Rome (Italy) over three days on 26-28 November 2018, with approximately 100 participants from across the world.

The Conference brings together Vincentian experts in homelessness to educate and train other Vincentians working to help homeless people. We hope this will improve the current services we offer our homeless brothers and sisters.
