Next Steps

The Exchange of NLA, in conjunction with The United Way of NELA, is guiding the response efforts to needs identified in our community. Through meetings surrounding the issue of homelessness in our community, three needs have been identified: Hunger, Transportation, and Shelter. 

All groups, churches, services and programs that are responding, or have shared interest in response to these needs, are gathering for the purpose of defining next steps, building upon what is already being done, and forming teams to take action in these three areas.

Please RSVP to Dylan at theexchange.nla@gmail.com
