Unveiling America: Addressing Issues of Contemporary Homelessness

Overview
Locations

Dickinson will host a panel of community leaders who will discuss issues surrounding homelessness in south-central Pennsylvania and their efforts toward finding solutions. “Unveiling America: Addressing Issues of Contemporary Homelessness” will take place Thursday, Feb. 28, at 7 p.m. in the Anita Tuvin Schlechter (ATS) Auditorium, 360 W. Louther St. This event is free and open to the public.

According to the Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania, more than 16,000 Pennsylvanians are known to be homeless on any given day. These estimates rise when those who are between temporary housing situations are considered. The four panelists will give insight into the various initiatives and programs that combat homelessness through intervention and assistive services. Jim Hoefler, professor of political science and coordinator of the policy studies program at Dickinson, will serve as moderator. Hoefler has served on UPMC Pinnacle Carlisle’s Biomedical Ethics Committee since 1993. He also volunteers with Domestic Violence Services of Cumberland and Perry Counties.
