Forum on homelessness in Waynesboro

An informal open forum meeting will be held on Monday, Jan. 31 at 7 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Waynesboro to provide information and education on the homeless situation in Waynesboro.

Community leaders from the Waynesboro Police Department, Valley Mission, Social Services, and Salvation Army will be speaking and participating. There will also be representatives from many area churches, schools, community groups, businesses, and charitable organizations who actively serve the homeless in Waynesboro and the surrounding community.

“We know that there are many organizations and individuals who are already serving those in crisis and many more who share our concern and desire to make a difference. This forum is an opportunity to bring all of these diverse resources together and to build a strong coalition and a united infrastructure for responding to homelessness within our community,” said Paula Greenhagen, senior warden at St. John’s Episcopal.

The forum will be open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. St. John’s is located at 473 S. Wayne Ave., Waynesboro.
