Public forum on homelessness
The Juneau Homeless Coalition will present an educational forum at the next meeting of the Juneau Assembly's Social Services Advisory Board, Wed., April 27, at 5:15p.m. at the downtown library. The meeting is open to the public.

Members will discuss the work of their individual agencies and examine the range of challenges and resources facing the homeless in Juneau, and explain the demographics of homelessness, seeking to dispel commonly held stereotypes. The goal of the event is to develop a more sophisticated understanding of the homelessness "system," and especially of the ways local agencies work together to meet the varied needs of the homeless. The forum will include time for questions and open discussion.
