Building a better understanding of homelessness and how kids can help
Presented by the Parents Community Service Network and Corlears School
Wednesday, February 27, 2019, 6-8 PM

The evening began with a Service Fair showcasing what students can, and are, doing to address issues of homelessness.  From curricular programs to after-school clubs, the ideas presented were impressive and inspiring!  A big "thank you" to all of our service fair participants. (A list of participants, along with other resources from the seminar may be found on our Meeting Notes Page.)
