Community Development

 

Over the past three to four years, the homeless population in Okaloosa County, has grown and become more visible. Some walk the streets of downtown day and night while others move around high traffic areas in the rest of the County and the beaches. Business owners are complaining that the homeless presence is hurting their business.

 

Carpe Diem Community Solutions spearheaded a countywide effort to bring citizens together to talk about the homeless concerns in the area. Carpe Diem Community Solutions President, Lynn Cherry, developed a series of community-based meetings to begin to identify and solve the homeless issues.

 

The series was coined the Okaloosa County Homeless Community Deliberation Series. The series began in September 2011 and ended in January 2012. The Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce sponsored the Homeless Community Deliberation Series. Carpe Diem Community Solutions served as the project developer and facilitator. The series keystone event was a day-long Homeless Summit. Here is an overview of the entire series:
