Insights & Inspiration: A Chat on Addressing Homelessness

Living in the Bay Area we see evidence of the homelessness crisis every day. And yet many of us remain uninformed about the issue and how it’s being addressed. Are you ready to change that?

Join us Tuesday, April 17th to learn about homelessness in the Bay Area, the important work being done to help those who find themselves in tough circumstances, and how you can make a difference.

In this informal and intimate session, four experts in the field will discuss how their work impacts people’s lives on a daily basis and what longer-term initiatives are needed. From running shelters and resource centers, providing critical access to healthcare, and helping people achieve emotional and physical stability, our panelists bring a wealth of experience to share.

The event is FREE and open to everyone, so bring your friends and learn together!
