•	Two possible dates and locations were discussed depending on availability of speakers for the seminars:
 April 9, 2022 — First Christian Church Richlands
 April 23, 2022 – Otway Christian Church

-	At first we decided to have a speaker on “Human Trafficking” and a speaker on “Overview of Mental Health/Substance Abuse Disorders and Treatment Implications,” but after much discussion we decided all the churches needed to have a speaker on “How to Draw People back to Church.”  So, we decided to reschedule the “Human Trafficking” seminar for another time.  

-	Kim Holley will search for a speaker for the latter seminar.  She also encouraged others to try to find one also.

•	Kim Holley announced the DHF 2022 National Conference was going to be Thursday, April 2829, 2022. She encouraged everyone to attend. She informed us that scholarships were available to pay for people to go to the conference. It is $85/person and $135/couple plus hotel expenses.  Lynn also informed us that DHF of NC would also cover expenses for anyone who wanted to attend.

o	He stated the trailer does have some new equipment
o	They still need to buy more stuff
o	They currently have a balance in their treasury of $2,077.00, which will be depleted when they get the rest of their equipment.
o	They may need to have a fundraiser
