Another good meeting for the Plum Street Village , CAC. The biggest take away for me was the fact that the PSV needs internet. I have offered to donate equipment if the city gets Comcast to install Cable Internet service. The social workers currently use a mobile hot spot, and residents are limited to their cell phone plans, often going to McDonalds to use the free WiFi. Both could be solved with a small shift in the way internet is provided, maybe even being cheaper (if not donated) for the PSV.

The other take away was when villagers exit the village for more permanent housing they are often in need of items that go beyond the essentials. I pointed out that their local Buy Nothing group could be a great resource for them.

Here are the minutes.
