Treasurer’s report - $17.00.

RGHC report:

John, Lauren and Fred met with Josh Scharman and Andrew Obald on 29 June 2016 at Police Headquarters.  They presented the results of the meeting with the rest of the group, which generated a great deal of discussion.  The need to educate homeless people to report crimes was mentioned and RGHC will take this issue up in their next meeting.  The group briefly discussed renaming the Narcotics Anonymous group and Lydell and Richard solicited feedback from the group.  Leeroy brought up the topic of the lu’au.  He wishes to hold it at the end of July (although at least one member is trying to persuade him to hold it sooner due to the need to recruit more members into the RGHC club).  Gloria brought up the topic of starting a business (deli and arts and crafts store).  This interested several group members and will be discussed in further detail later (along with the idea of getting small business training).  Also to be discussed at a future date is Brigit’s desire to hold classes for homeless (from Tuesday’s meeting).  Carlos brought up SLCC’s Promise Program; further education for homeless should be discussed later and articles for The Community Voice should be written to educate our fellow homeless brothers and sisters about the opportunities available and to encourage them to seek those opportunities out.
