Want to get involved? Here's your chance.
Care for the Homeless is co-sponsoring one of City Limits “Tackling Poverty Discussion Series,” about homelessness, shelters and the community. It’s free, but you have to RSVP in advance (see below). Collaborators in the event, in addition to Care for the Homeless, include BronxWorks, Institute for Children, Poverty & Homelessness (ICPH), and the Interfaith Assembly on Homelessness and Housing. The program is scheduled for Thursday, May 16, from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m., and will be followed by a free networking reception celebrating the launch of City Limits’ Bronx Bureau. Both the forum and reception will be held at the Bronx Museum of the Arts located at 1040 Grand Concourse in the Bronx.
The event program will include comments by Scott Auwarter of BronxWorks, Ralph da Costa Nunez of the ICP, Robin Hood Foundation Managing Director Eric Weingartner and Camella Pinkney-Price of the Bronx Borough President’s office. City Limits Editor Jarrett Murphy is moderating the program. The program can include you, too, because there will be time for audience questions and answers.
If you want to attend, you must RSVP at The City Limits website, here.
In addition to cosponsoring the event, Care for the Homeless will have a table set up at the event. If you’re going to the “Tackling Homelessness” event, please stop by and talk with us at the table. You can sign up for our free policy e-newsletter, become a Care for the Homeless Advocate and get a copy of our CFH Agenda to End Homelessness.
If you’re interested in volunteering to help out at the Care for the Homeless table at the May 16th event, contact Policy Director Jeff Foreman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
