Thanks to all the vendors who came out to support SHC’s Homeless Connect again this year. We picked up some great media coverage in The Inlander as well.
A couple of things:
- Next month’s meeting is the second Thursday of the month, January 9, same place, same time.
- We’ve received a few messages from folks seeking help/assistance on our Facebook message page. We can best help/direct you to those who can assist if you comment on a post. Unfortunately we probably won’t see your message in a timely manner.
- Don’t forget Homeless Connect coming up January 28!
Remember at November’s meeting we will be taking nominations for the 2014 term for the positions of Chair and Media Liaison!
Be there or be square!
SHC is happy to introduce new leadership team members Heather S. and Rob B.
Rob has served with us before and is the pastor at First Covenant Church in downtown Spokane. Heather is new to the team and works with Sam Baker at SNAP.
Check your Gmail for the latest Google Groups updates from today’s meeting! It’s hot and Spokane may be at the lake, but there’s plenty going on in the local homeless services community, including a mini homeless connect, committee meetings and planning for fall events.
Today the new online housing locator for the state of Washington, HousingSearchNW.org, is being officially rolled out to the public.
