Let’s Talk About Housing and Homeless in Davis

June Programs at Davis Methodist Focus on Shelter

(From Press release) Across California, affordable housing and homelessness is a huge and growing problem.  Yet solutions proposed by cities and non-profits are often met with neighborhood opposition.  How can we work together as a community to help our neighbors who are struggling to keep or find shelter?  As part of this conversation, Davis United Methodist Church is offering three programs on housing and homelessness on Sunday mornings, June 9, 23, and 30, from 9:45 to 10:50 at the church, which is located at 1620 Anderson Road in Davis. 

June 9:  The Challenge of Housing the Homeless, with Bill Pride, Executive Director, Davis Community Meals and Housing. 
Bill will discuss the lack of housing, lack of affordable housing, and eligibility barriers to housing that are driving up the costs of rental housing, raising poverty rates and exacerbating the plight of the homeless. He also will address potential solutions. 

June 23:   Homeless in Davis, with Ryan Collins, Homeless Outreach Services Coordinator for the City of Davis and the Davis Police Dept.

Ryan is in daily contact with homeless residents of Davis, visiting their camps, helping them with urgent problems, mitigating or resolving conflicts, and advocating on their behalf.  He will describe the daily challenges faced by the homeless in Davis and policies and solutions being considered by the City. 

June 30:   Affordable Housing in Davis. with Kelly Stachowicz, Assistant City Manager, City of Davis.
