In a 2020 poll released by Public Policy Institute of California, voters stated that homelessness was the top issue facing California.
Now, after facing multiple wildfires and a global pandemic there is a visible increase of unhoused individuals in our community confirming that in 2023, homelessness is still a top issue.
In fact…. just this morning the Press Democrat released an article about the Board of Supervisors holding a special meeting tomorrow to discuss the possibility of creating two managed camps at the Santa Rosa Veterans Building for unhoused individuals on the Joe Rodota trail.
Although it seems we are dealing with a moving target, I find hope in stories like Bradly Browns, a formerly homeless individual who changed his stars with the help of some incredible local programs and services.
There is a seat saved for you at our next program, A Discussion on Homelessness set for March 1st. Join us as we learn more about the complexities of this delicate issue and the opportunities we have to play a role in its solution.
I hope to see you there.
