The Task Force hosts bimonthly forums to connect with the Palisades community. At each meeting, we answer questions, solicit ideas, provide progress updates, and convene experts to address the pressing issues related to homelessness. These meetings are discussion opportunities - not lectures - and we appreciate every contribution.  The ideas debated here ultimately turn into concrete solutions, whether it's a Panhandling Policy or partnerships with local agencies.


Our efforts are only as strong as the community that supports them, so we encourage all to attend, whether they're new to the issue or have engaged with it for years.
