OKLAHOMA CITY – A one-day conference held every three years, the Oklahoma Housing Summit provides the opportunity for individuals working in affordable housing to come together to learn the latest trends, best practices, and changes in the industry.

The Oklahoma Housing Summit scheduled for April 14, 2016 in Oklahoma City will feature Noah Galloway, who skyrocketed to fame after placing third in this year’s 10th anniversary season of ABC’s hit television series Dancing With the Stars. He was also named the 2014 Ultimate Guy by Men’s Health magazine.

In 2005 while serving as an Army sergeant on his second tour of duty in the Iraq War, Galloway lost his left arm above the elbow and his left leg above the knee in an improvised explosive device attack. After a long road of rehabilitation and overcoming depression, he set a goal to get back in shape, live a healthier life, and inspire others.

Now a personal trainer and motivational speaker, Noah will share his inspiring comeback story and message of “No Excuses” to attendees of the Oklahoma Housing Summit. The conference is organized by Oklahoma Housing Finance Agency, a statewide agency that administers several affordable housing programs.

“Working in affordable housing, we assist individuals from all walks of life, including veterans and persons of disabilities,” said OHFA Executive Director Dennis Shockley. “Noah Galloway’s astounding physical achievements bring home the lesson that there are no limits in life, only possibilities.”
