Data in Springfield/Hampden County shows that a number of our long-term homeless veterans access shelter only sporadically and are not seeking out services. A peer-to-peer outreach worker is looking to find these veterans and start conversations with them. Towards that end, he is holding monthly veteran drop-in meetings. The meetings take place at Friends of the Homeless right after breakfast (which is open to the public), on the last Wednesday of the month.
Please help get word out to homeless veterans by posting and handing out this flyer, which has all the details.
