PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) -- A three-day summit meeting on homelessness and housing in Kansas takes place next week in Pittsburg.

The annual gathering is designed to help community members, law enforcement, educators and others better serve the homeless population.

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.
