This is the second Housing Issues Forum for 2018 with a focus on understanding and helping the homeless living among us.
Tara Carruth with the County Continuum of Care will present the recent County-wide homeless count, understanding the different people (and needs) that comprise the homeless population, and an overview of some successful programs to help transition and support this population.
Jason Meek, Executive Director at Turning Point Foundation, will present a more detailed look at their River Haven program, successes and needs for expansion and transition currently underway.

Instructions for using the calendar:
– Click on any event on the Calendar to see details about that event, including (when possible) a link to the original announcement.
– Clicking on the “Find Events” or “Narrow Your Search Results” boxes, or on the colored categories, are all different ways to help you find events you might be interested in. Note you can use categories to search by event type and tags to search by issue/topic.
– Click on the “View As” box to toggle between Month, Week, Day, or List views (“Month” and “List” tend to be the most useful).
Important disclaimers: This calendar is currently maintained by only a few individuals, and the events listed are generally based on what we have been able to gather off the internet. It is strongly recommended that you contact the individual organizations to confirm that details of their events (date, time, location, etc.) are correct before attending.
We make every effort to update the calendar weekly, but given our time constraints, this doesn’t always happen. If you want to help out in any way, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
