Some People Have No Home During the Hottest Part of the Year Monday, Jun 18 2018 

Coalition for HomelessAs the temperature starts to rise and the sun gets hotter, its important for the community to share their compassion with neighbors who are experiencing homelessness, and to work toward a world where no one has to experience hunger and/or homelessness. For most of us, the summer means trips to the lake, vacations with the family, pool parties, and neighborhood cookouts. For the people who are living on the streets of Louisville, extreme summer heat can mean life or death. Operation White Flag has already been issued several times this summer, which means that the heat index has reached 95 degrees or higher and all participating agencies open their doors, so people can remain inside, even if they don’t have a reserved bed. The Coalition for the Homeless has identified a few ways in which members of our community can help those who are less fortunate:

  1. Volunteer to join a local group like The Forgotten Louisville or Fed With Faith to help distribute food and other items to the homeless. They particularly need help during the summer with bottled water and sunblock.
  2. Volunteer with Dare to Care’s Summer Meals for Kids program, which provides breakfast, lunch and dinner for children across our community during the summer months.
  3. Join the Coalition for the Homeless‘ “Five Bucks A Month Club,” which helps fund Operation White Flag, to get one person off the streets and into shelter for one night each month during hot weather.
  4. Volunteer your time or plan a compassionate team building experience by contacting Metro United Way at (502) 583-2821, or RAK (Random Acts of Kindness), to find out what volunteer opportunities are available around the city.
  5. Advocate for more affordable housing through more community investment in the Louisville Affordable Housing Trust Fund.
  6. The Center for Women and Families accepts donations of used cell phones, so that their clients always have a way to make a call in an unsafe situation. They can be dropped off at any of their locations. For more information call (502) 581-7200.
  7. Help by joining the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and educating your networks on homelessness in our community. Use the hashtag #TakeAStandLou to join the Coalition’s conversation about how you’ll take a stand for the homeless during the hot summer months.
  8. Make a difference in the life of a disconnected young adult by joining the Web of Support. Meetings are held at YMCA Safe Place Services on the fourth Thursday evening of each month. For more information, contact Corbin Hannah at HCorbin@ymcalouisville.org.
  9. Host a homeless young adult for a short period of time while they work with a case manager on a permanent housing solution. For more information, contact Liza Smith at esmith@homeoftheinnocents.org.

For more information, please visit www.louhomeless.org or call (502) 636-9550.

National Gun Violence Awareness Day – June 2 Thursday, May 31 2018 

wear orangeJune 2 marks the fourth annual observance of National Gun Violence Awareness Day, also known as “Wear Orange Day.”

Wear Orange started in 2015, two years after 15-year-old high school honor student and drum majorette Hadiya Pendleton was shot and killed on Jan. 29, 2013, in Chicago — just one week after she performed with her high school marching band at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration.

An accidental casualty of gang violence, Pendleton was shot in a South Side park where she and friends had taken shelter from the rain.

Refusing to stay silent about her death, and the gun deaths of so many others, Pendelton’s friends decided to wear orange to commemorate her life and raise awareness. Why orange? It’s the color that hunters wear in the woods to protect themselves and others from gunfire.

The Louisville commemoration of the day is Saturday, June 2 at 11:30 am at Sheppard Park, 1601 Magazine Street. It features a community walk to demonstrate a commitment to gun safety, followed by a free picnic in the park. Enjoy music, games, face painting, group yoga and exercise classes, and more. Gather important information about keeping you and your family safe from gun violence. And, please, WEAR ORANGE!
