WHAT: TriCounty Community Network’s (TCN) Homeless Services Program, which consists of 25 local organizations, is hosting a community awareness event titled, “Rethink Homelessness” on November 30. As the temperature drops and the holiday season begins, many individuals in our area are homeless and are without food. The goal of the event is to draw awareness to this devastating problem affecting many in our community and offer ways our community can work together to help our homeless neighbors in need. TCN’s Homeless Services Program Committee is already connecting homeless individuals with agencies that can provide a successful continuum of care. Members of TCN’s Homeless Services Program Committee will lead the event and introduce formerly homeless individuals who will share their difficult journey.
WHO: TCN is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, membership-based organization that partners with nonprofits, businesses and community members to improve health, social and environmental conditions. Serving Western Montgomery, Northern Chester and Eastern Berks counties in Pennsylvania, TCN offers seven key programs: Build Up Youth, C.A.R.E. (Caring in Alternative Residential Environments), Environmental Awareness, Family Literacy, Homeless Services, SAFE (Supporting Abuse Free Environments), and Workforce Development.
