Yasmin Otero has scheduled the next meeting of the family workgroup. It will take place Tuesday, March 17, 10 am to noon, at the DTA Liberty Street office, 95 Liberty St., Springfield.
The goal of the meeting is to create a project map to aid in identifying what we need to carry out family homelessness prevention, rapid rehousing and stabilization efforts as proposed in the grant proposal and what elements we have in place and where gaps exist.
The National Alliance to End Homelessness has a new page dedicated to resources regarding prevention and rapid rehousing strategies. The paper Creating a Plan for the Homelessness Prevention Fund is especially detailed about prevention and rapid rehouse strategies.
