Homelessness symposium today

I'm off to the 17th annual Orange County Human Services Advisory Commission Forum. Co-sponsored by the Partnership to End Homelessness in Orange County, it's titled "Welcome Home: A Bold Proposal to End Homelessness."

For a second time this year, Philip Mangano, head of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, will be with us. I'm especially happy that we'll be discussing an idea that was introduced into our Orange county discussions in May: the Housing First program.
