This is the 14th year for the summit, which will take place April 15-17 at Pittsburg Memorial Auditorium. The hosts are the Kansas Statewide Homeless Coalition and the nonprofit SEK-CAP Inc., the Southeast Kansas Community Action Program.

Sessions will focus on programs for the homeless and the effects of gambling on homelessness. There will also be a poverty simulation, and sessions on fair housing and other topics.
