As the number of people who are chronically homeless is on the rise in Racine County, how to face the issue is the center of a discussion that will take place at 5 p.m. Monday, April 20 at the George Bray Center, 924 Center St.

This second meeting is a speak out session where people who are currently experiencing homelessness, have experienced homelessness or are at risk of being homeless are being invited to share their stories.

The overnight emergency program at the Hospitality Center ended March 31 for good while it maintains its day services. A number of the guests in the program — 28 in all — are being helped through a variety of services in the area including the Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization and the Hopes Center, but a larger discussion has taken place about how to address the often complex issue of homelessness.

Hundreds of people showed up to a community-wide discussion at Gateway Technical College on Tuesday, March 24 on how to tackle homelessness in Racine County. Sponsored by the Continuum of Care for the City and County of Racine, the purpose of the meeting was to involve the community in the strategic planning process to address the issue of homelessness and homeless prevention in the area.
