LAHSA Homeless Count Kick-Off

As a follow-up to our successful Town Hall on Homelessness and co-sponsored with Palms Neighborhood Council, SORO NC will hold a kick off for the 2017 Homeless Count at the IMAN Center, 3376 Motor Ave. from 2–5pm on January 8th

We'll have speakers from the LA Homeless Services Authority talking about the homelessness crisis in the City and the importance of the annual Homeless Count, held this year in our area on January 25. (SORO and Palms NCs are both participating in the count.)

The program will also include stories from homeless individuals, an update on homeless solutions in the wake of the passage of Measure HHH, and three steps you can take beyond the homeless count to help out.

If you're interested in learning more about volunteering for the Count, or just want to learn more about how you can help homeless people in your community, this is a perfect opportunity.
