An Urgent Virtual Call in Support of the Lehigh Valley Emergency Shelter System

The Community Foundation hosted a special virtual program An Urgent Virtual Call in Support of the Lehigh Valley Emergency Shelter System. 

LVCF's Megan Briggs, Director of Community Investments, helped facilitate a discussion focused on the immediate needs of our emergency shelter safety net that many people need to get through another harsh winter season. articipants learned about the greatest challenges and from representatives from the Lehigh Valley Regional Homeless Advisory Board (RHAB), the shelter system providers, and grassroot organizations explained how different parts of the sector are addressing and experiencing different pieces of this issue.
