homelessness and affordable housing
Facilitator: Gloria Leipzig; 617-460-3245; firstname.lastname@example.org
Mission: This group coordinates with the TriCommunity Coalition to End Homelessness to focus on issues of homelessness in Belmont, Watertown and Waltham as well as efforts to promote the development of affordable housing in our communities. We have sponsored forums on homelessness and its impact on families and individuals and also on making affordable housing a reality. We can only end homelessness if more communities are committed to providing low and moderate income housing. Our committee is actively working with local groups in Belmont, Watertown and Waltham to lobby for more affordable housing. We are also planning an outreach campaign to discuss affordable development opportunities. In addition, we plan on sponsoring activities to benefit Bristol Lodge, a shelter for men and women in Waltham and Household Goods, a volunteer distribution center for household goods for those who are in need.
Meetings: The next meeting of the sub-committee is Thursday, August 23rd, at 7pm at St Luke's Church. We meet approximately every 4-6 weeks.
