Cultivating Compassion: A Workshop on Homelessness

A workshop for the business community to explore the causes & impacts of homelessness and how we can work together to effect change through advocacy in action.

Preble Street and Homeless Voices for Justice will present a two-day training to the Portland business community on homelessness: causes, effects, and solutions. Members of Homeless Voices for Justice will speak from their lived experiences, provide an opportunity for businesses to think through their own experiences, collaborate on creating best-practice policies, and begin working toward solutions.
