Free Seminar Addresses Causes, Solutions to Homelessness

Homelessness has reached crisis levels both locally and nationally. Many factors, including misinformation and myths, contribute to this growing problem.

A free, public seminar called Homelessness 101 on March 19, 6-8 p.m. in Fullerton College’s Wilshire Auditorium will provide information and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about this issue. Such as:

  • What causes people to become homeless?
  • What is the current state of homelessness in Orange County?
  • How can homelessness be solved?

By the end of the seminar, attendees will become familiar with many of the approaches, philosophies and terminologies associated with homelessness. More importantly, they will gain a much better understanding of the homeless system in our community, including the most up-to-date statistics and best practices for solving homelessness in Orange County for good.

Homelessness 101 is co-hosted by Fullerton College, United to End Homelessness, the City of Fullerton, and the Fullerton Collaborative, and supported by the Fullerton College Sociology Club.

Free parking will be available in Student Lot 10 and the FC Parking Structure on the corner of Lemon and College Place. A parking pass is not needed in these areas. All other parking lots will require a parking pass.
