Arborwiki Edit Night At Arbor Brewing

Wednesday April 23, 2014: 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm -- Arbor Brewing - 114 East Washington

What's ArborWiki? ArborWiki is the community generated source for details on everything from birthday deals to local history to the lowdown on local playgrounds.

Since it's a "civic wiki" it's created, edited and maintained by locals. Who are those locals? That could mean you! If you have an interest in any aspect of the Arbor/Ypsi area - parks, history, local happenings - you might be a perfect ArborWiki contributor or editor.

Come hang out and grab a frosty beverage at Arbor Brewing (114 East Washington in Ann Arbor), meet some of the current crew of editors, and hop in to edit or create entries about your community. Bring your laptop or use one one of ours!

Being Homeless In Washtenaw County

Wednesday March 19, 2014: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

This event will be recorded

In 2011 in Washtenaw County, more than 3,000 children and their parents were homeless. Rates of homelessness among families increased at a faster pace than any other homeless sector. Local minimum wage jobs are harder to find, family incomes are decreasing, and rental prices are increasing.

Join service and housing providers from across the community as they discuss the current state of homelessness in Washtenaw County, the innovative partnerships that have been created to address the need, and the next steps needed to end homelessness in our community.

Panelists include: Nicole Adelman, Interfaith Hospitality Network @ Alpha House; Carole McCabe, Avalon Housing; Greg Pratt, Michigan Itinerant Shelter System Interdependent Out of Necessity (M.I.S.S.I.O.N.); Tenetia Pulliam, Housing Access of Washtenaw County (HAWC); and Ellen Schulmeister, Shelter Association of Washtenaw County.
