Attend a Meeting

Attending a meeting is a great way to get a feel for the group and the work we do. BHCC meetings are held the first Tuesday every other month from 3:00-4:30 pm for all interested in joining Coalition efforts.  Currently, all meetings are virtual. BHCC meetings for the 2022 school year are scheduled for January 4th, March 1st, and May 3rd.
