Our Network’s own Jane Banks, program director of Center for Human Development, received an award from the statewide advocacy group Homes for Families at a ceremony yesterday in Worcester for Inspiring Leadership in her work for homeless families in the Western region.
You can read more about it here in the article that appeared yesterday in the Greenfield Recorder.
On behalf of the Network, we share our pride and appreciation for Jane’s tremendous work over 16 years. Congratulations, Jane!
At the Networks’ October 16 Housing First training, we were fortunate to have Dr. Wayne Centrone, from the Center for Social Innovation and the t3 Institute, give a presentation on Harm Reduction and Housing First.

Thank you to all organizers, presenters and attendees at our Housing First training on October 16. We heard great stuff about our local successes, advice for improving our work, and inspiration from Connecticut and Portland, Oregon. Over the next weeks, we’ll post presentations from the training, as well as a survey seeking your ideas about future training events the Network and CoCs can bring to our region.
The Network’s Housing First training, scheduled for October 16, 2014 at Holyoke Community College, has reached full capacity at 150 people.
If you wanted to go and have missed out, you can still go to the registration page and provide your information for the waitlist. While we do not know if any spots will open up, this will give us information about how many people are interested in this training, which will let us know if we should try to offer it again. We’ll keep your name on file for future trainings.
Thanks for all the interest!
