Kelly Mindful Mornings 2On February 1, Homeward Director Kelly King Horne spoke at the monthly Mindful Mornings session. Mindful Mornings is “a monthly forum for do-gooders who want to create a more well-world.” Kelly was invited to offer insight into the challenges and successes of homeless services in Greater Richmond. Her first axiom to share with the audience was her unwavering belief that “homelessness sucks and is a stupid problem [for our community] to have.” She went on to acknowledge that our understanding of homelessness and adaptation of related services in Greater Richmond are driven by sophisticated data analysis and collaboration, but did not deter from the fact that there are enough resources to overcome an issue as complex as homelessness.

In closing, Kelly urged the crowd that in order to end homelessness in our community we must focus on identifying what works and who can do it best. A great place to start thinking about this process is the resource we shared with the Mindful Mornings audience, Creative Ways to Engage is Ending Homelessness in RVA.

We encourage you to take a look at Mindful Mornings RVA’s Facebook page and be a part of their next community conversation.
