Homeless advocates protest in front of the Humboldt County Courthouse

Local organizations gathered outside the Humboldt County Court House this morning for “National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week”.

HACHR, and Food for People, were among the many agencies protesting this afternoon. Edie Jessup, with Affordable Housing Alternatives, tells us she was out there today because she knows people living on the streets, and says, it’s a small county with a big homeless problem. Jessup says she would like to see temporary, and inexpensive solutions, such as “micro housing villages.”
