SUMMER FORUM’s (ZOOM ONLY) starts off its year with a special guest from the Richmond non-profit, “Safe Organized Spaces” (SOS). O’Neill Fernandez will present how the work of SOS creates work and housing opportunities for unhoused neighbors. SOS hires right from homeless encampments to deliver trash pick-up, water, portable showers, laundry service and many more survival necessities. Mr. O’Neill will share with us the personal tragedy that led to his loss of housing, and his entire life: “I went from making over $100,000 a year to living in a tent in 3 months. It could happen to you.”  Please join us on Zoom for this heartfelt and engaging conversation with Mr. O’Neill Fernandez.
