First Friday 2019Artboard 1

Have you ever wondered about how people become homeless, who becomes homeless, how the systems work (and don’t work), and exactly what can be done?

You’re invited to join DRC’s executive director Bruce Frankel for a series of lunch and learn events during 2019. Each lunch session covers a different topic, and each topic is offered twice during the year. Join us for as many or as few as you’d like.
