Religion and homelessness intersect at USC Roundtable

  Religion and homelessness intersected on October 18 at a high-level roundtable hosted by the University of Southern California. More than 50 religious and civic leaders, including Archbishop José H. Gómez and L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas, gathered to share ideas regarding the homelessness crisis and how their communities can provide practical aid. The event was hosted by USC’s Institute for Advanced Catholic Studies, Center for Religion and Culture, Office of Religious Life, Initiative to Eliminate Homelessness and the Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work. “In the Catholic faith, we have the commandment to loving God and loving one another,”
