Judge Robert Fields of the Western Division Housing Court serves on the Leadership Council of the Western Massachusetts Network to End Homelessness.  He, along with Housing Court Judge Dina Fein and the Housing Court staff, would like to invite providers and state agency staff to a meeting at the Court in your county (or neighboring county) to discuss how best to connect the influx of homelessness-related resources in the region to the people who face the threat of eviction through the Housing Court process.  The meetings will take place on:

Hampden and Hampshire County

Thursday, November 5
1- 2 pm
Western Division Housing Court
37 Elm Street, Springfield

Franklin County

Friday, November 13
1-2 pm
Juvenile Court Building
114 Main Street, Greenfield

Berkshire County

Wednesday, November 18
1-2 pm
Superior Court Building
76  East Street, Pittsfield

Please come prepared to give a 2 minute summary of your program and the funds you have available, along with whatever materials (e.g., eligibility criteria, applications) you think they would need to best understand how to access your resources.  With the Network’s assistance over the next few weeks, we will aim to deliver materials with as much uniformity as possible.

Please contact Pamela Schwartz at [email protected] to let her know if you can make it, and which meeting you plan to attend.  We hope to see you there!
