Homelessness in Berkeley: a panel discussion @Central

Join us at the downtown Berkeley Public Library for Homelessness in Berkeley: a Panel Discussion.

There are exciting and viable programs that can house the homeless in Berkeley! Panelists will provide a broad background on homelessness as well as specific conditions in Berkeley in order to demystify this important community issue and share proven  solutions that have already worked in other cities. We will hear about solutions that are happening now and those that can be applied in Berkeley.
