Introducing a Brand-new Fundraising Event

 

 

Our Luncheon & Forum—Unhoused & Unhealthy—Barriers & Strategies to Healthcare addresses the cycle that many unhoused people go through for medical needs. This repeated cycle through ER's, clinics, hospitals, and facilities only to return once more to the streets is ineffective. We know there is a 60% higher mortality rate for these individuals that those that are housed. In January, 539 people were sleeping outdoors or in cars in RI alone. It's time we acknowledge the disparities, barriers and find strategies and solutions.

 

This event will feature a panel comprised of professionals who are developing creative ways to bring healthcare to the unhoused. Join us to learn how they are applying these strategies in their work and how you can too.

Authorities in Central Texas are assessing the damage done by severe storms Wednesday night. A mall in the town of Temple was damaged, along with some homes and businesses. So far, there have been no reports of any injuries.       It looks like former President Trump is set to receive a vote from another one-time challenger. Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley did not formally endorse Trump, but said yesterday that she puts her priorities on a president who is "going to have the backs of our allies and hold our enemies to account."        A senior advisor to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is stepping away from his independent presidential campaign due to a "hateful and divisive atmosphere." Angela Stanton King announced Wednesday her departure as the campaign's head of Black voter outreach because the campaign "no longer aligns" with her values.        Russia denies the U.S. saying that Moscow launched a weapon into orbit that could attack other satellites. U.S. Pentagon press secretary Pat Ryder said the Kremlin launched a satellite that was "likely a counter-space weapon presumably capable of attacking other satellites in low Earth orbit."        A George Floyd biopic called "Daddy Changed The World" is in the works. The family-authorized film has his daughter Gianna and her mother, Roxie Washington, involved as executive producers. Gregory R. Anderson is writing the screenplay, which will cover Floyd's life as the man whose 2020 murder sparked protests across the U.S. against police brutality.        An injection of cash could come to NFL owners soon. During an ownership meeting in Nashville on Wednesday, commissioner Roger Goodell said private investment into teams is making real progress. If approved, institutional wealth and other private firms would be allowed to invest in teams to help finance projects like stadium renovations.
