People concerned about the impact of homelessness and hunger in Jefferson County are invited to join the League of Women Voters of Jefferson County for a panel discussion on Wednesday, Nov. 8, to learn about who is addressing the problem and what can be done to help. The event will take place at St. Anthony’s Hospital South, 11600 W. 2nd Place, Lakewood, from 7 to 9 p.m. It is open to the public and free of charge.

Panelists will include Arvada Chief of Police Don Wick, The Action Center Executive Director Mag Strittmatter, Jeffco Schools Community & Family Connections Coordinator Rebecca Dunn, and Family Tree and Heading Home’s Linda Barringer.

In addition, Michelle O’Neill-Clark from the Volunteers of America and Lucas Burrier, a veteran’s advocate with Mountain Resource Center, will be staffing tables at the event to answer questions and distribute printed materials about services for veterans.

There will be time for questions as well as information about actions that can be taken by individuals.
