Bonnie-jean Jenkins, she/her/hers, DHS_Parenthood Program
01:09:57
thank you, yes that addresses my question
Derek Hoyt - Outreach Court
01:15:24
Randie Weiss, i saw the second part to your question. I would recommend reaching out to those various counties and see what options are available to assist someone you are working with. Often, we do have individuals that have cases from other cities within Colorado and we are unable to hear those cases at Outreach Court since we only have jurisdiction over Denver cases. Project Homeless Connect is something to research as well. We have been involved in that event in the past and we are able to handle cases similarly there.
David Palmer
