Our January meeting consisted of a panel discussion about homelessness in Dakota County. Panelists included Beth Bromen (Dakota Woodlands), Renee Levesque (Guild Incorporated), and Madeline Kastler (Dakota County Social Services). We also collected donations of personal care items for residents of the Dakota Woodlands homeless shelter, including 1,910 diapers! Special thanks to one of our members, Emily Carlson, for organizing the donation drive! Because of the number of slides, the presentation below is broken up into two sections.
