Engage With Homelessness
People experiencing homelessness is on the rise in our nation, state and city. As complex an issue as it is, as frustrating as we all may me with legislation, laws and the challenges that come with this issue, we must engage in a productive, strategic, collective manner in order to see progress and peoples’ lives impacted. Trellis facilitates various ways to engage.
