Homelessness in the Bay Area
~ a Panel Discussion of its Causes, Consequences and Best Solutions.
What is being done to fix the problems? What can be done? What should be done?
Come join us for a discussion of the most significant social issues facing Bay Area communities today.
Our panelists are leading experts in the field, directors of four Bay Area nongovernmental organizations dedicated to goals of ending homelessness and ameliorating its effects.
Here are our panelists who will address these critical issues:
|Margot Kushel, Harvard College Class of 1989, is a medical doctor who is Director the UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations and Director of the UCSF Benioff Homelessness and Housing Initiative. Dr. Kushel’s clinical practice and research focuses on the causes and consequences of homelessness and housing instability, with the goals of preventing homelessness and lessening its effects on health.|
|Joe Wilson is the Executive Director of Hospitality House, a multi-program agency serving residents of San Francisco’s Tenderloin, Sixth Street Corridor, and Mid-Market neighborhoods struggling with homelessness, poverty, and other socioeconomic issues.|
|Tomiquia Moss is the Founder and Director of All Home, an organization that works with organizations throughout the Bay Area to find permanent housing solutions for the currently homeless and to abate our current homelessness and housing crisis.|
|Jamie Almanza is Executor Director of Bay Area Community Services (BACS) which provides integrated behavioral health and housing services to house the most vulnerable homeless populations throughout the Bay Area.|
We’ll gather at 6:00 p.m. for light snacks in the lobby of Delancey Street Foundation’s screening room theater at 600 The Embarcadero, San Francisco. Easy to find, accessible to public transportation on any Muni line headed south toward the Giants Oracle ballpark which you can board at the Embarcadero Station and get off at the Brannan Street stop. Or from BART at the Embarcadero Station, on a nice day, it’s a 20-minute stroll along the Embarcadero, or a 15-minute walk from CalTrain. The panel discussion will begin at 6:30.
