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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to attend so we can ensure we have the necessary meeting space.
Thanks and looking forward to this exciting conversation.
