    Homeless Task Force to focus on causes of problem

    To be more than just a Band-Aid to the growing homeless problem in Oxford and Lafayette County, the Oxford Homeless Task Force voted Sunday to launch a new initiative to form a Transitional Housing program.

    Sherry Williams-Jenkins heads up the shelter committee. After reviewing different types of shelters and the feasibility of having a homeless shelter in Oxford, the committee decided the best way to offer more than just temporary fixes is to institute a more long-term solution. (October 11, 2010, Page 1A)

      More join effort to help needy

      On a mission to provide a weekly meal to the needy, about 50 folks representing every walk of life came together Tuesday evening to learn more about the program slated to begin in September.
      College students and the elderly, artists and social workers, the rich and the not-so-rich, gathered at the Stone Center to see what they could do to help provide “More than a Meal” to those members of the community who could use some assistance from time to time. (June 23, 2010, Page 1A)
