Our second meeting was on November 18, 2014 and it was held in Anne Arundel County at the Lighthouse Shelter. We were hosted by the facilities impressive Culinary Arts students. This program is an onsite job training program available for those living in shelter to assist them with job training skills that will lead to a more stable source of income.
During this meeting we received a report out from our workgroups and we discussed the concept of Housing First. If you want to learn more about Housing First, take a look at these short videos:
