Synopsis: The PHFA Housing Services Conference is a three-day event providing a focal point for training and networking activities for housing service coordinators and property managers. A new feature of this year's conference is the opportunity for residents and housing management and service partners to work together on a Housing Services Common Thread Quilt Project through the creation of quilt squares. The goal is to complete three quilts to be unveiled during the conference. We believe that health is more than a matter of physical well-being, which is why we've developed this year's conference to promote healthy housing that enhances the complete mental and social well-being of the state's residents as well.
