Beloved Community Forums for Racial Understanding & Reconciliation presents: ‘Our Community, Our Problem: Identifying the Issues of Homelessness & What You Can Do to Help’
Homelessness and the issues affecting it occurs in every community whether large or small. The stereotypes associated with this community issue often project a distorted image about who is caught in this negative cycle that impacts the quality of life & well-being of the entire community. Some may feel that this is the personal problem of those directly affected by homelessness – it is not. Homelessness & its accompanying issues is a problem for us all; the lack of or inability to attain quality living for one detracts for the quality of life for us all – Our Community, Our Problem. This 3-part forum seeks to raise the visibility of the homelessness problem by hearing from experts actively working with this population. It will also identify local efforts to assist individuals & families impacted by it and share strategies for helping them escape this negative cycle.
