A Summit on Homelessness in Stanislaus County
On any given day in Stanislaus County some 1,400 people are homeless, and an estimated 18,000 more may be at imminent risk of homelessness. Some of these individuals are veterans, some are families with children. Some find daily shelter and some live without any shelter at all. On October 1, 2015, our community joined together to build a long-term movement to find real answers to homelessness in our county.
The day’s program included:
- Reflecting on emerging data on homelessness in Stanislaus County and strategies to reduce homelessness
- Panels engaged in dialogue about the many facets of homelessness.
- Breakout sessions where participants can begin conversations about how to build the movement in their community.
