Bethesda Cares Director to Speak About Homelessness
Tuesday, February 5, 7 p.m., Town Hall

John Mendez, Director of Bethesda Cares, will speak about Ending Homelessness in Bethesda and Montgomery County on Tuesday, February 5 at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall, 4301 Willow Lane.

Bethesda Cares reaches out daily (especially on frigid days/nights) to over 100 people living on the streets, the majority of whom are over 60.   They also help prevent homelessness with one-time grants to individuals/families facing eviction, and they help place people experiencing homelessness in housing with an average grant of $1,600 to help cover the initial security deposit and one month’s rent.

Some of you may remember a man died in his car overnight last winter in the Giant parking lot on Arlington Road in Bethesda.   We can all join the effort to help those experiencing homelessness and to contribute to ending the scourge of homelessness.

This event is being sponsored by Town residents Christina Files and Scott Fosler.   Please RSVP to anglofiles1@gmail.com.  Refreshments will be served.
