Description

Join the Junior League of Oakland-East Bay (JLOEB) Joins Bay Area nonprofits for an in-depth conversation on area’s most vulnerable residents.

The panel will examine the state of homelessness and what nonprofit organizations are doing to address it through technology, advocacy, cross-collaboration, outreach, and volunteer work. We will also talk about potential long term, sustainable solutions.

The panelists will touch on particularly vulnerable groups like foster youth, veterans, and the mentally ill. They will also discuss the changing face of poverty.
