(From Press Release) – We in the Davis community have any number of unmet needs.  Here’s an opportunity to learn about a pilot project that we hope will help meet several of them.

Davis Downtown to Discuss Opportunities for the Homeless

Davis Downtown invites member businesses and the community to the May 24, 2017 Brown Bag meeting at River City Bank to discuss Pathways to Employment transitional employment program.

Davis’ newest program giving a hand up to those in need is enlivening the downtown area, one block at a time. Pathways to Employment’s first task is to beautify Downtown Davis while at the same time building job skills, self sufficiency and self esteem.

Beautification puts the sparkle in downtown making it more attractive for shoppers while providing homeless and formerly homeless individuals gainful employment and opportunities to move ahead.

The goal of Pathways to Employment is to engage businesses in a collaboration to make our downtown brighter and better while offering opportunities to our neediest community members. How can you be involved? Find out more at the Davis Downtown Brown Bag meeting.

This Davis Downtown Brown Bag meeting will be held at River City Bank, 239 E Street, in downtown Davis, on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm.

Organized by Davis Downtown’s Visioning and Community Relations Committee, the Brown Bag meetings facilitate thought-provoking dialog regarding issues affecting Downtown Davis in a casual setting.

Participants are welcome to bring a lunch or purchase one at any downtown eatery. For more information, contact Davis Downtown Executive Director Stewart Savage at (530) 392-8324 or
