Homelessness topic of presentation today

PORT ANGELES — “Sheltering the Unsheltered: Myths and Truths about Homelessness in our Region” will be presented from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. today.

The program hosted by Voices for Health and Healing will be at the Olympic Unitarian Universalist Fellowship at 1033 N. Barr Road. A question-and-answer period will follow the speakers.

Three people will address the group: Doc Robinson, executive director of Serenity House of Clallam County; Amy Miller, who heads the RedisCOVERY program at Olympic Peninsula Community Clinic (formerly VIMO); and Sequim Police Sgt. Sean Madison.

Madison will speak on his investigation of the idea that local homeless are being bused from elsewhere.

“Learn about the realities from the people who aid the unsheltered in our community,” a flyer for the gathering says.
