Antelope Valley College will host a Homelessness Summit, “From Theory to Action” on Friday, October 6 from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Antelope Valley College Performing Arts Theatre, 3041 West Ave K, Lancaster.

The county also has dedicated people and programs working to make a difference in the lives of those living under these conditions. This event will bring the community together to share ideas, voice concerns and—most importantly—to learn.

Keynote speaker will be Kathryn Barger, 
5th District Supervisor, Los Angeles County.  Additional Speakers include:

·       Gina Di Domenico, Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office  “Los Angeles County’s Homeless Court Citation Clinic”

·       Carol Crabson, Valley Oasis “Coordinated Entry System (CES)—How it Works!”

·       Jill Vincent “Her Life”

A panel discussion with Q&A will follow with representatives from Los Angeles Homeless Service Authority, Mental Health America, Penny Lane Centers, Los Angeles County Sheriff Department, and Grace Resources.
