Homelessness Town Hall Recap

Homelessness Town Hall Recap

Residents, elected officials, and service providers gathered on November 21, 2023 to discuss how services to people experiencing homelessness work and where there are gaps. As a next step, we believe it is important to give the community space to process the information and engage.

We want you to be empowered with the connection to the resources currently available in our community and hopefully be inspired to assist in the mission through volunteering, donating, and/or other ways that can help address the issue.

Below you will find a link to the full video from the town hall as well as key contact information for individuals that you hear in the presentations. We also have included, and encourage you to find additional ways, to support and assist these organizations. Ultimately, if this work is going to sustain, it will take an all-in approach. It is a big, complex problem that will take leadership at all levels of our community, boldness, and initiative to work together on solutions.

Here is a link to the town hall video from November 21st, 2023
