Join Us for a Faith Community Meeting on Homelessness
You’ve likely heard that the City of Tacoma has officially declared a “homelessness state of emergency.” As response plans continue to be developed, local communities of faith will be called upon to be part of the solution; this is a unique opportunity for congregations to step up and demonstrate our compassion for those in desperate need. This is the time to be involved as never before!
In light of this emergency and the needs that are so clearly evident, we urge all people of faith to come together to better understand homelessness in Pierce County, to be introduced to programs and services offered by AM and other agencies, and most importantly, to learn how to take an active role in efforts to end homelessness.
Please plan to participate at AM’s next quarterly community gathering on Thursday, June 15, from 4:00-6:00 pm at Bethlehem Baptist Church, 4818 E. Portland Avenue, Tacoma. Among our guest presenters will be Pamela Duncan, Human Services Manager for the City of Tacoma.
We’d love to have representatives present from all congregations that are interested in addressing homelessness and effectively serving the vulnerable. Call Valorie Crout at 253-426-1508 for more information.
