Treasurer’s report - $17.00.

RGHC report:

Briefly discussed Narcotics Anonymous meetings (about date/time and location).  Decided that non-homeless guests can come to the Wednesday SLCMCC meeting but Tuesday’s meeting is just for the homeless.  RGHC decided it needs to get representative from Road Home to attend meetings, as there have been a lot of bad things happening at the Road Home including woman getting sick from second hand smoke from drug users, unreported rapes, theft, etc.  Leadership for Road Home not meeting with us; we talked about protesting/sit-ins and calling the media.  The Guardians, their role and how they should interact with the police and social workers was discussed.  Gloria is to announce soon who the Guardians are.  Issues will SPS Security Guards at the Road Home and issues with the Salt Lake City Police Force were discussed (such as police harassing people for small things while ignoring drug users, police not listening to women reporting rapes, etc).
