Panel Discussion on Youth Homelessness
November 4, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Do you know how many homeless youth live in Tacoma-Pierce County? Pierce County Community Connections estimates that 3,000 youth are homeless or at risk of being homeless. 1,000 of these youth are under 18 years old. So, who are our homeless youth? What are their resources? What is the city and county doing to help them? And, what can YOU do to help? Participate in one of the Junior League of Tacoma’s signature events on November 4 to learn more!
