Help us prepare for the 2015 Youth Count

We need your input as we prepare for the 2015 Homeless/At-Risk Youth Count, which will take place the last week of January 2015. We know that homeless youth often try NOT to be found, which makes it difficult to get an accurate count and understanding of this population’s needs.

Help us out by completing our survey, and sharing the survey broadly, so that we hear from many people who connect with youth. Click below to take the short survey:

Jane Banks Awarded for Inspiring Leadership!

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!

Successful Housing First training

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.
