Conversations for Change: Homelessness - A Complex Issue
Homeless people do not fit into any one category. Some are local folks; others are not. Some have lost jobs, housing, and suffered significant financial difficulties. Some who live in cars or shelters work or go to school, trying to better their circumstances. Some of the most vulnerable while living on the streets become mentally unstable and/or addicted. There are individuals, families, veterans. There are the chronically mentally ill and chemically addicted who cannot function or hold a job. Some turn to petty crime and property theft as a way of supporting addiction. Homelessness is a humanitarian crisis affecting our communities. This Conversation for Change will focus on your views on the causes and steps necessary to begin to resolve the problems of homelessness affecting our community.
