Poverty and homelessness are a real problem affecting thousands of families in Massachusetts. It is easy to forget that this problem has a name, a face, a story and a dream for a better future. Real people and real families.
Stand with homeless families to make housing a priority for our elected officials this year!
Housing Families’ Legislative Breakfast is a powerful event that Housing Families hosts each year to advocate for broad and effective solutions to ending family homelessness. The event provides the opportunity for homeless and formerly homeless families to share their stories with elected officials and the public. All are welcome to attend to hear their stories and learn what we can do to make a difference in our communities.
This event is free and open to the public; hosted at the the Irish American Club | 177 West Street, Malden MA
Please call your reps and urge them to attend. You can find their information here.
