New Homeless Forum

As LEO reported last month, members of Occupy Louisville have been vocal in their frustrations with local homeless shelters.

Back in January, Occupiers met with the city to discuss these concerns. One of the biggest ones? The sense of not having a voice, a venue to convey struggles in the system.

That’s about to change. The city’s first ever homeless community forum is scheduled for this Friday March 9 from 11-12:30 at Central Presbyterian Church at 318 W. Kentucky St.

Homeless (and formerly homeless) are urged to come with questions, suggestions or concerns for local experts in homelessness, housing and social services. That panel will include representatives from the Coalition for the Homeless, Metro Housing Coalition, Highland Baptist Church and Louisville’s Department of Community Services and Revitalization.

Will people come? The word’s being spread in shelters and by those with close ties to the street.
