Tri-Cities Homelessness & Housing Task Group

Home » Insight


In 2019, the Task Group presented 2 workshops titled Homelessness: A Primer for Business.

The focus of the workshop was to provide Tri-Cities businesses with an insight into homelessness and suggestions to help manage any impacts.

This information is relevant for all community members who want to gain a better understanding of homelessness, learn what resources are available to the homeless in the Tri-Cities, how to respond to trespassing, how to safely dispose of sharps, and when to call for help:
