RGHC plans:

Briefly discussed having a Lu’au to help RGHC receive more recognition in homeless community.  Group agreed to start local Narcotics Anonymous group run by homeless and catering to homeless addicts on the Rio Grande St. and 500 West area.  It will be funded by homeless.  Books and chips were ordered using homeless people’s money.  Gloria introduced four guests who shared their stories of homelessness.  Bridget shared what it was like to be homeless in Miami and New York City and Jenna and her husband shared what it was like to be homeless in South Dakota.  The group discussed redesigning The Community Voice, including new artwork, adding homeless resource lists to the end of the newsletter and adding new sections, like a comics section.  Gloria is to pick out Guardians and John will provide a job description to those people.  An idea was brought up for homeless people to teach classes to other homeless people.  Andy will meet the group at 1300 on Friday, 17 June 2016 in Pioneer Park to record people’s stories.

 Attend meeting tonight (15 June 2016) at Leonardo for Site Selection Committee meeting.
