Greetings once again from the SJR Action Community Team (SJR ACT)! We are digging into the important work right away in the new year. In our inception, the team identified three areas we wanted to begin our work. While we know there is a LOT to do, we decided to start with Transportation, Homelessness, and Law Enforcement/Opioids. Our progress with the Transportation Commissioners Office has been phenomenal and bus is due to be in place by July 2019.

Our next big EVENT will be a Point in Time Count ON JANUARY 24th from 11-3pm (see flyer below). The purpose of the event is not to track the unsheltered, but rather count them to help secure resources and assess what our needs are on the Ridge. We will be serving FREE hot meals, giving away warm clothes and other supplies and having live music and fun! Our survey will help SJR ACT interface with county services to help the residents of the ridge and help improve their quality of life. Gift cards will be available to those who qualify and complete survey. If you or someone you know is housing challenged, couch surfing or living in their car or tent, PLEASE tell them to about this event.  JANUARY 24TH 11-3PM AT THE COMMUNITY CENTER!
