May Speaker – Connie Wilkerson

Homelessness in Jackson County

From 12:00 pm until 1:00 pm

Believing in the inherent worth of each individual, Constance Wilkerson has worked for social justice and the self-development of people for her entire career.  As an ordained Presbyterian minister, she served congregations in New York and Oregon for 20 years and then transitioned to systems change work in the non-profit realm. She created a new impact area for United Way of Jackson County that removed transportation barriers for people of low income, persons with disabilities, and Seniors so that those populations could access services, employment, education, and medical care more readily.  Currently, she serves as the Continuum of Care Homeless Prevention Coordinator for the Jackson County Continuum of Care. The Continuum of Care is a HUD-mandated, community-wide commitment to provide stable housing and wraparound services for the most vulnerable homeless residents of Jackson County.

Ms. Wilkerson holds degrees from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College, Medical College of Virginia, and Union Theological Seminary.

On May 10th she will speak to Club Members about the Homeless Issue in Jackson County.
