The City of Longview is encouraging the community to assist with Longview’s Homeless Resource Day, which is a collaborative effort of the City of Longview and various nonprofit organizations to provide homeless individuals access to available services. The Homeless Resource Day will take place from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m., Thursday, January 23, 2020, in the Longview Exhibit Center, 1123 Jaycee Drive.
In 2017, Longview Mayor Andy Mack’s Task Force on Homelessness identified the critical need to have a “One Stop Shop” opportunity for Longview’s Homeless population to access actual services. On March 24, 2018 the first event took place with 44 different service providers and an estimated 350 attendees attending to access those services.
A list of suggested donation items for Homeless Outreach Bags can be found on the city’s website at LongviewTexas.gov/Homeless. Donations can be dropped at the Longview Public Library, 222 W. Cotton during regular operating hours.
