Today the Spokane Homeless Coalition had a wonderful candidate forum with politicians from the region. We were able to share a few facts on local citizens experiencing homelessness and programs that are working to address the housing challenges our community faces. You can find the Homelessness Facts sheet were presented by clicking here. Additionally, we were able to ask the politicians about their stance on the role of government in affordable housing, the importance of the Housing Trust Fund and their opinions on healthcare reform that impacts the citizens we serve. Look for more posts on the site with more information about the exciting event! And a special thanks to the candidates in attendance:
Timm Ormsby, 3rd District House Representative
Marcus Riccelli, 3rd District House Candidate
Andy Billig, 3rd District Senate Candidate
Dennis Dellwo, 6th District House Candidate
In our continued effort to support citizens experiencing homelessness we thought it would be helpful to address some of the myths surrounding those we serve by providing some often-overlooked facts. Head on over to our new Myths vs Facts page (under “Our Mission”) to take a look.
Hello and welcome to the new site! We’ve transferred over all the old information and added some new things that you (hopefully!) will find helpful. On the right side of the screen you’ll find a lot of helpful information, including links to our new twitter account, our facebook page, and a quick way to subscribe to our Google Group.
Just above the news items (like this one) you’ll find the navigation menu with some additional information about the Coalition, our mission, committees and even meeting minutes! We will be rolling out additional features to the site in the near future. For now, have a look around the site and feel free to provide feedback via email.
