Do you work or live in a place where unhoused people spend their time? What do you do when you encounter someone who may be experiencing homelessness? Often times we see someone in crisis and turn to emergency services for help. However, this can often do more harm than good.
The criminalization of poverty and homelessness has long-lasting effects for both the individuals and the community. Join NEOCH on Wednesday, August 3rd from 12-2pm to learn about those effects, laws that target unhoused people, and how NEOCH’s outreach team can help when you meet someone experiencing homelessness.
