Congressman Neguse to Hold 3rd Service Town Hall at Boulder Homeless Shelter
In his first 6 months in office, Neguse has held 15 town halls, the most of any freshman member of Congress
Washington D.C. — Congressman Joe Neguse will hold his 3rd service town hall —and 16th town hall since taking office — on Saturday, July 13th at the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless. Neguse launched the first-of-its-kind “service town hall” initiative in March and has held events at Bridge House Boulder and at Rocky Mountain National Park since then. The new initiative combines community service with an official Congressional town hall and seeks to educate community members about local service organizations and opportunities in their area.
“It has been incredibly educational and inspiring for me to learn more about organizations in our community and to see community members come out in large numbers to help their neighbors and serve the 2nd district,” said Congressman Neguse. “For our third service town hall event we are partnering with the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless to learn about homelessness in Boulder and steps we can take to ensure everyone in Colorado can access stable housing.”
“As a partner in Homeless Solutions for Boulder County, the Boulder Shelter for the Homeless is an integral part of a community-wide approach to providing adults experiencing homelessness with targeted resources to help them transition back into stable housing,” said Greg Harms, CEO of the Boulder Shelter. “The solution to homelessness is housing, and we are grateful to Congressman Neguse, and our local volunteers and donors for their support of the Shelter and our efforts to serve the most vulnerable in our community.
