Facing Homeless in Pierce County: Creating HomeFULLness

April 28 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


A free community forum on April 28 is designed to explore how the community can mitigate the effects of homelessness and help to decrease the rate of homelessness in Pierce County.  Co-sponsored by a variety of community organizations, this forum will provide information about affordable housing options, racial inequity in homelessness, how services are currently coordinated, effects on the health care system, youth homelessness, organizing the community to address homelessness, and more.  The film, Road to Nickelsville, about burgeoning homelessness in King County in the early 2000’s will be shown.  Panelists will address not only what is currently happening, but what the community can do to create solutions.

Co-sponsors include the League of Women Voters of Tacoma-Pierce County, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), American Association of University Women (AAUW), Restoring the American Dream (RAD), Associated Ministries, Molina Health Care and Washington State Historical Society.
