Sixth Albany Community Summit on Homelessness

(ALBANY, Oregon) - The sixth Albany area summit on homelessness will happen Wednesday, from 9 a.m.-noon at Albany City Hall, 333 Broadalbin Street SW. Representatives of organizations and agencies that work directly with Albany's homeless and low-income residents will attend, with this year's focus on the "new homeless:" those in or near homelessness due to the ongoing economic downturn.

Rick Crager, deputy director of Oregon Housing and Community Services, will give a keynote address. Groups and individuals involved in initiatives in the Albany area will give updates on those projects including supportive housing for women in transition; a new children's dental clinic; and the Adult Services Team that works with individuals or couples who have been hard to house.

The summit is a community effort that began after the City of Albany closed a long-time homeless camp in a city park in 2006. It is sponsored annually by the City, Community Services Consortium, and the multi-agency Homeless Enrichment and Rehabilitation Team (HEART) board.
