Our Network had the pleasure of meeting with Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray on Tuesday, August 24th at the Friends of the Homeless in Springfield. The Lt. Governor requested the meeting on the heels of other western Massachusetts events. Leadership council member Sylvia deHaas-Phillips of the United Way of Pioneer Valley generously stepped up to host the meeting as Pamela and Council co-chairs Lynne Wallace and Father Stan Aksamit were out of town. We also had 15 other Network partners from across the region in attendance, all on two days notice, a true testament to our depth as a Network. Members seized the opportunity to both hear from the Lt. Governor about the importance of our effort and to share with him how vital the Network is and will continue to be in our work to end homelessness.
Thanks to all who could be there and congratulations to everyone for once again demonstrating our unity and commitment!
