Event Details

In an effort to give the community better information about who the unsheltered are, how they came to be in this state, and who they could become, and to promote compassion towards, and better treatment of, the unsheltered, as members of our community, SAAF will be hosting a panel discussion at the Arsenal for a public audience comprised of residents and business owners of the downtown/southtown area.

The panelists will be volunteers from local agencies that do outreach among the unsheltered, and local leaders of the community. We intend to also hear from people who are currently experiencing houselessness or have transitioned out of that state successfully.
