Homelessness in Danville

A community meeting was held on Wednesday, December 6, to provide the opportunity for community members and local organizations to share their thoughts and experiences with the homeless community in Danville. Members of the Danville City Commission were in attendance to hear comments and presentations related to the issue, to gain a full understanding of the scope of homelessness in the community.

This meeting, led by Danville Police Chief, Tony Gray, was intended as a starting-point for further discussion and action-planning, identifying key stakeholders to combat homelessness, and support members of the local homeless population.
