The Lourdes University Department of Education presents
“Homelessness: Approaches to Support Students in an
Educational Setting” on Thursday, November 30, from 6:30 to
8 p.m. in the Franciscan Center, 6832 Convent Blvd.,
Sylvania. The event is free and open to the public.
Expert panelists from Toledo Public Schools, Family House,
Leading Families Home, and the Toledo Lucas County
Homelessness Board will address teachers and social workers
in attendance. The discussion aims to educate individuals
