Please join the SE Uplift Houselessness Action Committee (HAC) for an evening of resource sharing and conversation on Monday, August 1st , 6:00 – 8:00pm in our parking lot at 3534 SE Main Street. Neighbors from across our southeast coalition district will gather to meet and mingle with the organizations and projects leading the way in addressing houselessness in our city.

This family-friendly event offers neighbors a meaningful opportunity to connect with grassroots organizations and to get involved in compassionate solutions. Come learn about effective and practical efforts to support our houseless neighbors.

Over 50 homeless service providers and community groups have been invited to set up a table for this resource-sharing event. We will also hold breakout sessions for community members interested in forming a Houselessness Action Committee in your Neighborhood Association and learning more about organizing a hygiene station in your community.

This is a family-friendly event. We are planning fun activities to entertain the kiddos and light snacks will be available. We will also have a work station for individuals and families interested in assembling hygiene kits to be distributed to houseless neighbors. We ask guests to consider bringing mini- or travel-sized packages of the following items for this effort:

  • Soap bars
