March 4, 2023 @ 9:15 am - 12:00 pm

Saturday.   Update:  Zoom Only.  Saturday’s meeting is no longer hybrid and will be online due to the snow forecast (9 inches😱). The agenda remains the same.

A hybrid in-person and Zoom meeting this month. For the in-person crowd,
meet at the Washtenaw County Learning Resource Center where, at this time,
masks are optional. Details on both options below.
The Housing and Homelessness Crisis in Washtenaw County

There has been a significant spike in people experiencing homelessness in
Washtenaw County this winter, especially families who cannot find housing.
Local housing and homelessness service providers and others involved with
the crisis will inform us about the impact of the lack of housing on the
most vulnerable in our community, and its negative effects for education,
business, health care systems, and so many other aspects of life across the
county. We’ll learn more about what we can do about it. Read more on MLive.
