The MA Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) has developed extensive resources regarding Discharge Planning to Support People Experiencing or at Risk of Homelessness. DHCD provided a training to front-line shelter staff on Feb. 28 that can be found here. And the Powerpoint for the training can be found here.

Thanks to DHCD and the Executive Office of Health and Human Services for their work on this important issue.
