***We have decided to cancel all of our spring regional events. It seems prudent in these times to limit non-essential travel and group gatherings in order to help protect those in our communities who are most vulnerable. The good news is that we will be offering a consolidated live online event instead! Instead of the 4 or 5 sessions you would have attended, you'll now have access to 8 to 10 sessions over the course of 2 days: April 23 & 24The cost will be $15 for members and $30 for non-members.  Registration will open soon. ***


ReFrame Association is a national network that supports safe and healthy housing by connecting, educating, and promoting home repair programs. We identify and encourage widespread use of best practices in repair methods, volunteer management, community partnerships, homeowner relations, and more. We host an annual national conference, webinars, and regional events. Associations members have access to benefits such as an online resource library, private discussion groups, discounts for background checks, free project management software, and more. Learn more.


The goal for this event is for home repair programs in South Carolina to gather to share ideas, support each other, and find ways to collaborate in order to better meet the housing needs of low-income people in the state. We welcome staff, board members, and volunteers to attend. View last year's detailed event agenda. This year's session titles and descriptions will be published when they are confirmed. 


The event costs $35/person for ReFrame Association members and $50/person for non-members. (Not a member? Join now!) Registration includes breakfast and lunch. If we are able to secure an event sponsor, the rates will be reduced by $20/person, and we will provide a partial refund to those who have already registered. 


Please note that this event will be held at a new location in 2020.
