Salon: "Homelessness in Ashland: Who are the Homeless? Who are We?"

Primary tabs

Sunday, June 10, 2012 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

At The Jefferson Center, a presentation entitled “Homelessness in Ashland: Who are the Homeless? Who are We?” will be given by member Sandra Coyner. Ashland includes a number of homeless people, and almost as many misleading stereotypes about who these most destitute are, why they are here, what they want and what they need. (Taxpayer-funded temporary housing? A bus ticket to Midland, Texas?) Let's see where our critical thinking skills lead us in understanding this issue--and in figuring out what role we in the Jefferson Center, can and perhaps ought to be doing about it. Bring your thoughts on this important topic for the discussion afterward.
