Event description

Description

Homelessness has reached crisis levels both locally and throughout the country. Many factors, including misinformation, myths and 'good intentions' contribute to this growing problem.

This class will provide a wealth of information and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about this issue, including: What is homelessness? What are the key factors that lead to homelessness and what is the current state of homelessness in Orange County? How can homelessness be solved? And who is homeless in Orange County?

By the end of this session, you will become familiar with many of the philosophies and terminologies associated with homelessness. More importantly, you will gain a much better understanding of the homeless system here in Orange County, including the most up-to-date statistics and best practices for solving homelessness in our community for good.

Come break down the myths and discover how you can play a key role in changing our county’s history as well as the lives of our neighbors experiencing homelessness.

Pre-registration is required and seating is limited. You must sign-up to attend via the "Register" link above. Due to high demand, individuals may only register to attend one Homelessness 101 class per calendar year.
