Eugene’s Mayor Kitty Piercy is pleased to invite two leaders from every congregation in central Lane County to participate in the event Faith in Action With Our Homeless on Thursday, September 22, 2016. Those people will be expected to report back to their congregation following the event, and offer strategies for continued engagement.
The organizers of this event, the Quest team, intend to reduce poverty and homelessness by establishing a communication network among and between faith communities and homeless people for the purpose of sharing knowledge, experiences, and resources. A keynote speaker from the Salem Leadership Foundation will describe the organization’s networking success. After lunch, attendees may join small group sessions to discuss a variety of subjects which Quest hopes will inspire our local faith communities to collaborate on shelter projects:
