Homelessness Forum and Consensus Meeting

Thursday, January 29, 2015, 6:30 p.m.
Haggard Library
2501 Coit Rd., Plano, TX 75075

The public is invited to see a presentation about "The Changing Face of Homelessness in Collin County." Persons are identified as homeless if they do not have a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence (e.g., may be sleeping in a car, sofa surfing, or doubled up with another family). This presentation, prepared by the Collin County Homeless Coalition in partnership with Collin College, will focus on services available and numbers of those receiving and seeking shelter in Collin County. Because of the extent of the situation, state law now requires ISDs to name a person to be a "Homeless Liaison."

Following the presentation, LWV-CC members will review the issues and come to consensus with respect to a position on homelessness in the county.
