"A Conversation About Being Homeless," for any folks who are or recently were homeless, will be hosted Friday, October 10th, 2 pm to 4 pm at IHOP to recognize World Homeless Action Day.
The gathering is to appreciate people who have been dealing with homelessness; it is sponsored by a committee of Smart Solutions to Homelessness, Lived Experience Group. IHOP is mid-county, on 41st Avenue near Capitola Road (going toward the beach from that intersection, right side 41st). Part of our casual conversation will be facilitated circle-style by LEG co-chairs Janice Kern and Linda Lemaster.
Look for IHOP reserved area and our sign. Poster Art resources, networking, share a bit of our stories, trade wisdom, hopefully pancakes.
Anyone experiencing homelessness, and their allies, are welcome. In the event of a crowd, facilitated part of our conversation may be limited for only folks experiencing homelessness, depending on decision of those present. Casual means participate however much or little you want, restaurant-appropriate. Bring important information if you want, travel news...

*Santa Cruz County Strategic Plan to End Homelessness forum dates
*Western Regional Advocacy Project's Homeless Bill of Rights
