Affordable Housing and Homelessness Adult Forum Follow Up
On April 16 in our Adult Forum, we had the opportunity to hear from six members of our community connected to the related issues of affordable housing and homelessness. A plethora of topics to discuss and the incredible knowledge of our guest speakers meant we ran out of time and were not able to address questions. After our time together, our panelists were invited to respond to your questions. Two of the panelists were able to provide written answers; the submitted questions and their answers, with some minor edits for length and clarity, are available in this document.
To suggest topics, contact the director of education.
