Homelessness: Our Housing Crisis and A Call to Action

Homelessness: Our Housing Crisis and A Call to Action

Wednesday, April 28, 3:00 pm until 4:30 pm

Explore with us what each of us can do to help address homelessness in Franklin County and the North Quabbin area. Learn about the causes, challenges, and opportunities from Shaundell Diaz, the Coordinated Entry Specialist for the Three County Continuum of Care, whose family experienced homelessness twice, and is now a new homeowner. Hear inspiring success stories from Lyndia Downie, President and Executive Director of the Pine Street Inn, in Boston, an award-winning program that aims to end homelessness by making permanent housing a reality for all, demonstrating the effectiveness of the Housing First approach. We will then take a deep dive into the challenges and what is being done in our area, with Keleigh Pereira, Director of the Three County Continuum of Care, at Community Action Pioneer Valley. With this information in hand, we will entertain questions and discuss organizing for action!
