Homelessness in WV: You Can Make a Difference

Imagine... Imagine a city where we didn't say, "Someone should do something." Imagine a city where we worked together to help those less fortunate. Imagine a city where we viewed the homeless as people, not problems. 

Imagine if we cared for one another. Imagine if we invested in each other's lives. Imagine if we gave our time and even more. Imagine a city where we didn't say, "Someone should do something." Imagine we said, "I am someone."

Be Someone.  

The Coordinating Council on Homelessness in Morgantown, along with county, church, state, and national cooperation, is working to be the voice and the change needed to make a difference in the Morgantown community.

Coordinating Council on Homelessness, WV (CCOHWV)

The Morgantown community project's stated goal is to eliminate chronic and veteran homelessness by the end of 2016 in Monongalia County. The purpose of the Coordinating Council on Homelessness (CCOH) is to coordinate the community-wide efforts to end long-term homelessness.

CCOH assists the service agencies which are providing homeless services to develop a common agenda of policies and practices based on the latest research on the most effective methods to end homelessness. It enlists all entities in the community - city and county governments, businesses, faith communities, healthcare providers, public safety officers, and private citizens - in providing resources and support for the community-wide efforts.  

Homelessness Initiative in Morgantown, WV:

Executive Director John Sonnenday offered some of the initiatives the CCOH hopes to implement moving forward in Morgantown, including downtown "street ambassadors" who would work not only to offer hospitality but also utilize training in how to deal with situations like aggressive panhandling in a non-confrontational manner.

Additionally, Sonnenday said a task force will be developed to help invest people in the local community. "These would be positive activities for people to engage in - those who don't have the money to do a lot of other things, but need something worthwhile," Sonnenday said. "Not busy work off to the side, but things that would integrate people into the life of this community."
