Kick Off Homelessness Awareness Month

LEGISLATIVE OFFICALS AND COMMUNITY STAKEHOLDERS JOIN TOGETHER FOR THE HOMELESSNESS AWARENESS MONTH KICK OFF EVENT

Homelessness in the Capital Region is often a hidden, but tragic reality. The Capital Region Coalition to End Homelessness, an association of local homeless and housing service providers, is committed to working in partnership with our local legislative officials and community stakeholders to prevent and end it. November is Homelessness Awareness Month and our annual kick-off event is being held at Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless’ new site which will be converted to a new space that will allow Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless to expand on their well-established health and wellness programs and provide additional permanent housing units.
