Community Forum on Homelessness

There has been a lot of energy lately geared toward finding ways to serve the homeless and those families and individuals who are living in less than ideal situations. A great deal of this interest and energy is coming from citizens and individuals who are looking for ways to help out. 

As a first step in the process of improving resources and increasing awareness, community partners are coming together to host a Community Forum next Thursday January 19th from 6:30-7:45 PM at Valley Life Center in Dallas.

The goal of this first of several meetings is to:
1. Hear from local programs that serve families who are in need in the area about what is already under way.
2. Discuss what programs, resources and services are missing.
3. Come up with ways folks can help out immediately, in the near future, and make plans for down the road. 

Light refreshments are being provided by our local Country Financial agent and we will have limited child care available for children ages 6 weeks- 10 yrs old. Register here if you need child care. If you are interested in attending, we'd love it if you could RSVP to ghavami.alinna@co.polk.or.us so we know how many chairs to set up. 
Together we are going to do great things!
