At the Network’s Unaccompanied Homeless Youth Committee meeting last week, we learned that the Special Commission on Unaccompanied Homeless Youth has created a “Demonstration Project” Work Group.  This Work Group is charged with making recommendations for the allocation of the FY16 state budget’s first-time allocation of $2 million for unaccompanied homeless youth housing and support services.

We agreed to come together for a special meeting to brainstorm our own committee’s recommendations for their consideration.  This conversation will have a broad statewide policy lens, not specific to the Western region per se while of course integrating our regional needs. And we welcome your input and participation.

We will meet on:

Wednesday, November 18
9:30 – 10:30 am
Northampton Senior Center
67 Conz Street, Northampton

Please RSVP to Pamela Schwartz at if you plan to attend so we can ensure we have the necessary meeting space.

Thanks and looking forward to this exciting conversation.
