TriCounty Community Network’s (TCN) Homeless Services Program, consisting of 40 local organizations, is hosting a Rethink Homelessness Community Forum on Thursday, February 9. The goal of the forum is to provide an opportunity for discussion about homelessness, how we define homelessness, and how we are addressing homelessness as a community.
The keynote speaker will be Will O’Brien, Special Projects Coordinator at Project H.O.M.E., a non-profit providing housing and services to chronically homeless men and women in Philadelphia and empowering them to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty. He will be introduced by Rev. Marvin Marsh of Pottstown First Baptist Church. The program will also include stories from homeless individuals and volunteers, as well as educational information and a Q&A session.
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.
