On Thursday, November 17 from 2:00 – 4:00, the Rice County Homeless Response Team will sponsor an information session on the realities facing the homeless in our area. This event is part of the nationwide “Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week” that is held each year during the week before Thanksgiving.
In 2010-11, thirty homeless households used the Community Action Center’s emergency shelter program. These households included 19 children. Homelessness in small cities and rural areas is often less visible than in big cities, but the issue exists here too.
The Homelessness Summit will be held at South Central College in Faribault. For more information contact Sue Warring at the Community Action Center or Gina at 507-332-2236.
