Homelessness 101 Class

Homelessness has reached crisis levels both locally and nationally. Many factors, including misinformation and myths, contribute to this growing problem.

This Homelessness 101 class will provide information and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about this issue, such as:

  • What is homelessness?
  • What causes people to become homeless?
  • What is the current state of homelessness in Orange County?
  • How can homelessness be solved?

By the end of this session, you will become familiar with many of the approaches, philosophies and terminologies associated with homelessness. More importantly, you will gain a much better understanding of the homeless system in our community, including the most up-to-date statistics and best practices for solving homelessness in Orange County for good.

Class will be led by Becks Heyhoe, director of United to End Homelessness on Wednesday, October 23 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. at the Newport Beach Public Library - Friends Room.
