HPAC's Three Questions:

  1. What concerns and issues does the community have about homelessness within the City of Monroe? 
  2. What are the underlying causes of homelessness in Monroe? 
  3. What do we need to know about the causes, resources, and strategies underway in Monroe and other communities that reduce homelessness?
