LORAIN — Combating homelessness was a community effort Wednesday during the annual Lorain County Homeless Stand Down health and resource fair at Sacred Heart Chapel on Pearl Avenue.
The annual event brought more than 100 homeless persons, their families and at least 62 homeless veterans together, organizers said, to receive free hot meals and get services to help them out of poverty, sickness and housing insecurity.
The Nord Center, The LCADA Way, ADAS Lorain County, Legal Aid Society of Cleveland, Lorain County Health and Dentistry, the Genesis House, Lorain County Community Action Agency and half a dozen other service organizations set up tables in the church gymnasium to pass out literature and connect with those in need.
