Assure that All Families in Massachusetts have a Home
It’s a tough time for Homes for Families to be doing this work to end family homelessness. The housing and crisis is affecting everyone, and depleting resources for our most vulnerable neighbors.
We remain committed to a better way. Homes for Families’ members are advocating for a coordinated effort to end family homelessness and to ensure families have stable housing. Efforts focus on prevention of homelessness, production of affordable housing, adequate funding for family shelters, and education and training to increase and stabilize income.
Even in the midst of the crisis we are experiencing success, winning resources for housing and prevention, holding back the worst of state budget cuts to shelter, and gaining new allies in our work. In these difficult times, our strong clear advocacy voice is needed now more than ever.
We also have cause for hope. Through our public policy series, parents who had once been homeless are coming together to learn about public policy. And they are now lifting their voices as advocates for change. They are returning to shelters to educate other homeless parents, registering them to vote, and engaging them in advocacy.
Your contribution will help the movement to end family homelessness and help us to empower families to end the cycle of poverty.
