Improving the Lives of the Unhoused in the Bay Area Panel Discussion

Mare Island Toastmasters invites the public to an open house on Thursday, April 25 at 7:30pm. The meeting includes a panel discussion with people who are improving the lives of the unhoused in the Bay Area. The meeting will be held online on Zoom. For the zoom link send an email to maryteaches707@att.net.

The three people on the panel work with the unhoused and they really know what will work and what will not. The panelists pictured on the left is: Mecca Cannariato, Clinical Director of Housing Services San Francisco, and in the center is pictured AnnMarie Bustamante, Coordinator of Street Outreach DAO Oakland, and on the right is pictured Jackie Jones, President of Vallejo Together. The panel will talk about providing real solutions for the unhoused. Two of the solutions are Vallejo Together’s Mobile Basic Needs program and the Community Action Academy.

This panel discussion about the unhoused is a timely issue because the number of people who are unshoused has increased.

On Bipartisan Policy.org, Francis Torres wrote, “According to the most recent national count, 653,104 people were experiencing homelessness across the United States on a single night in January 2023—an increase of 70,642 people (12%) from 2022. At the time of the count, one out of every 500 people in the U.S. was unhoused. The numbers from the 2023 Point-in-Time (PIT) count represent the single largest one-year increase in homelessness since the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development began collecting data in 2007. ”

Come and find out about people who are improving the lives of the unhoused in the Bay Area. In addition to the panel discussion, we will have some other fun activities with members
and the audience. Mare Island Toastmasters club is a non-profit 501(c) organization. We help one another achieve more and become better speakers and leaders.
