Please see below the petition to advocate for funding for unaccompanied homeless youth in the FY16 budget. The Network has adopted this funding allocation as a top priority for the FY16 budget as well. Please join us in working towards this important outcome.
From the Mass. Coalition for the Homeless:
We are grateful for the Legislature’s efforts earlier this winter to pass An Act promoting housing and support services to unaccompanied homeless youths (Chapter 450 of the Acts of 2014). Now we need your help to secure the funding needed to implement this law, so that thousands of young people in Massachusetts can have a safe place to sleep and can access the services needed to develop as healthy, productive, housed adults.
Please take action by signing this petition directed to your Representatives and Senators:
Thank you for helping us make sure that youth experiencing homelessness are provided with housing options and adequate services.
