CHAT is the designated underwear source for our homeless neighbors during this year's Homeless Connect event. Please drop of new, packaged underwear at 1519 Arbutus in Chico, from now until April 25, 2016. You may also send money donations for purchase of underwear to CHAT, PO Box 4868, Chico, CA 95927. Your help is greatly appreciated.

~~Please join the Unitarians on April 16, Saturday, at 7 PM, for a benefit concert for CHAT/SafeSpace at Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, 1289 Filbert Ave, Chico. You will be more than impressed by the incomparable YCC ALL STAR BAND, with John Seid, Larry Peterson, Bob Littell, Zach Cowan and Rex Sromness, as they perform an eclectic mix of folk, country, jazz and blues. Only $15, no advance purchase required. Contact Leslie Johnson, 518-9992, for more information. Help us provide shelter for those without housing in Butte County, and enjoy some great music too.
Safe Space opens tonight, but we're all concerned about how many people are without other options and what to do when we run out of space.
Stairways has a waiting list 50 people long and while the Torres shelter has some open beds, many of those in most need will not or cannot comply with the constraints required to stay there.
We're seeking input from anyone with ideas on how to help bring more community members out of the dangerous cold, assistance carrying out feasible plans will also be valuable.
Intake is at the Calvary Community Church at 13th and Broadway 5:30-6:30pm. Safe Space, in partnership with local churches, offers low barrier shelter to those in need.
The season is scheduled to run through the end of February, but we have two weeks during the final month without host locations yet identified.
