City of Clarksville proclaims Homeless Awareness Week

homeless proclamation

During the Aug. 3 regular session of the Clarksville City Council, Mayor Joe Pitts formally proclaimed the week of Aug. 5-11 as Homeless Awareness Week in the City of Clarksville.

The purpose of the proclamation is to educate the public about the many reasons people are homeless in Clarksville and Montgomery County, including a shortage of affordable housing for very low-income residents.

The Clarksville Area Urban Ministries Grace Assistance Program, represented at the council meeting Thursday, is committed to sheltering, providing supportive services, and giving meals and food supplies to the homeless. 

Mayor Pitts encourages all citizens to recognize that many people do not have housing, and need support from citizens and private/public nonprofit service entities.

"Furthermore, I commend the Urban Ministries Grace Assistance Program for their commitment to this issue in our community," Mayor Pitts stated in the proclamation.

Mayor Pitts was joined in the presentation by several representatives of Urban Ministries. Shown from left are, Alisha Slayden, Kris Bacchus, Jodi McBryant, Mayor Pitts, Deborah Ashcraft, Melanie Mosier, Nancy Leutert, and Sandra Simms.
