Joyce Hoffman: Town hall on homelessness a start

Robert Marbut’s presentation on reducing homelessness was informative and inspiring.

With standing room only, The Union’s and KVMR’s facilitation of this “town hall meeting” enabled the community’s voices to be heard about the frustrating predicament of homelessness. Thank you for hosting the presentation at the Center for the Arts. Thank you, audience members, for your questions.
