The Curry County Community Advisory Council for AllCare meets 5:30 p.m., Thursday to discuss current investments that address homelessness in the community and to consider new projects.

The office is at the former Umpqua Bank on U.S. 101 in Harbor, adjacent to Wild River Pizza, and is open to the public.

The council is comprised of Curry County residents who create health assessments for AllCare, which then identifies gaps in non-medical health-related services and figures out ways to improve them.

The council is currently accepting applications for more projects aimed at addressing homelessness in Curry County.
