Sunday, May 8: Deb Holman, Homeless Outreach Worker for Chum This Cloquet native has been working on behalf of the homeless for 18 years. Most days she’s out visiting makeshift camps and hiding spots, looking for people who have fallen off the grid. “We need to start building relationships with people that are hiding out there because that’s how you get them in.” With the help of tips to the 24 hour Outreach Hotline, Holman and her team work tirelessly to make that connection. The goal is to shelter first, and then provide services. “I think we
do save lives sometimes, but I think the community plays a part too.” Holman is quick to deflect praise for her efforts. She credits the many organizations that have given her the opportunity to do her job.
“I feel like I have the best job in Duluth. I feel very fortunate that I get to do what I get to do.”
Sunday, May 15: We will watch the video of Judge Shaun Floerke’s Keynote Address on Addiction, Recovery and Self-Care for Professionals at the St. Louis County Health and Human Service Conference with some time for conversation.
