Supervisor Hahn to Partner with Local San Gabriel Valley Businesses in Battle against Homelessness

LOS ANGELES- As a part of her ongoing effort to combat homelessness in Los Angeles County, Supervisor Janice Hahn is hosting a Business Summit in San Gabriel Valley where entrepreneurs, owners of local businesses, community leaders, homeless advocates and the general public will share expertise with each another, speak with policy experts, and join forces to end homelessness in Los Angeles County.

This summit stems from Hahn’s belief that partnering with business leaders is key to addressing the homelessness epidemic:

“Business owners are born problem solvers; they’re innovative, dedicated, and won’t stop until they find a solution,” said Supervisor Hahn. “That’s why it’s imperative that the County of Los Angeles taps into this incredible network and work together to end homelessness in our communities.”

 The event is on Monday, FEBRUARY 27, 2017 from 9:00 AM-11:30 AM at the Hacienda Heights Community Center and is open to the public.

 Speakers include: Bishop David G. O’Connell, Phil Ansell, Director of the County Homeless Initiative, Richard Hopkins, The East San Gabriel Valley Coalition for the Homeless, Anthony Duarte, CEO of The Regional Chamber of Commerce—San Gabriel Valley, and Leaders within the Business Community.

 Participants should RSVP
