Read the Report: Community Conversations on Homelessness

Final Report on Community Conversations

Click Here to read the report on Community Conversations on Homelessness (opens a pdf file). I want to thank each person who participated in the 6 Community Conversations on Homelessness in the Washington area. The Washington community responded with empathy, compassion and respect on the issue of homelessness. These conversations were a partnership between the Washington Community Relations Board and Washington Public Library. The American Library Association supported the program with a $3,000 grant and training materials. Thank you to the volunteers who worked on scheduling, training and facilitating conversations. I am happy to report that at least one high school student experiencing homelessness found shelter as a result of these conversations. A report summarizing the conversations is posted on the Washington Public Library website – Thank You, Nelson AppellDirector, Washington Public Library
