County Housing Forum is Thursday in Wellsville

A community conversation for the public to hear and provide input about homelessness and community housing needs and challenges will be held Thursday night in Wellsville.

The session, to be conducted from 6PM to 7:30PM, February 15, in the David A. Howe Public Library auditorium at 155 North Main Street, will include testimonies from people who face ongoing barriers to finding safe housing, along with community professionals who work with vulnerable people without safe housing.

ACCORD, a Community Action Agency in Belmont and forum organizer, says that “understanding and input from everyone leads to sound planning and solutions that work for everyone.”

A five-page Housing Profile for Allegany, Cattaraugus and Chautauqua counties, contained in the organization’s 2022-2024 Community Needs Assessment, is available at
