Rural CPOs Partner to Begin Homelessness Discussion

CPO 15 Nov 2017 meeting.

CPOs 10, 12C, 12F, 13 and 15 receive accolades on their Homelessness Forum!

Many came from across the county to share in a discussion about homelessness and how it affects those living in the rural areas. 
 

The joint November forum, Homelessness - A Rural Discussion, was a huge success. County Commissioner Bob Terry applauded the efforts of CPO 10 and CPO 15, and cited the event as an example of what he sees as an effective role of the CPOs and an illustration of a great program. He said it was the most well attended CPO meeting he has seen to date. One of the forum's presenters, Brian Schimmel, produced a wonderful, informative video of the forum. This video provides practical information about how you can help the local programs helping the homeless and what you can do if you encounter homeless people on our rural properties. It is a good use of an hour to watch this video.
