Target Population Work Groups

Beginning in 2017, ARCH will have work groups to address issues related to homelessness and housing for three populations groups: Veterans, Families/Youth, and Chronically Homeless Individuals. These groups have been identified by the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness as "Target Population" Groups, with a challenge for communities to work together to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring for people within these demographics. 

Members may elect to send a representative to one or more Target Population Work Group, however all groups meet at the same time, so one individual can not attend all meetings.

These work groups will usually meet on the 4th Thursdays of "even" months at 1PM. Target Population Work Group meetings are held at Acadiana CARES (809 Martin Luther King Jr Dr / Lafayette).
