The Second Annual Regional Forum on Homelessness will be held in Bowling Green next week. The activity is designed to coincide with National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.
Dick Freed is one of the organizers of the event. He says its can be difficult to accurately estimate how many homeless people there may be in a community, because many people don't fit into traditional images of what the general public associates with homelessness. Freed says several communities across the country are taking pro-active, comprehensive approaches to dealing with the issue. Several of the sessions at the upcoming Forum will focus on the importance of taking such an approach.
The Regional Forum on Homelessness will be held November 13th at the Christ Episcopal Church in Bowling Green.
