No Place to Go When It’s Cold: Finding Solutions for Homeless in Our Community

Pennies for Poverty and the Justice Action Ministry of the First Religious Society (FRS) Unitarian Universalist will host a public meeting on January 10 to discuss the challenges and potential solutions for the homeless in our area. John Feehan, executive director of the Newburyport YWCA will outline the results of the homeless count conducted in January, 2017 which indicated that there are 467 homeless in the greater Newburyport area, including 334 children. Also joining the panel, Russell Green, executive director of Family Promise North Shore, will highlight their efforts to return newly homeless families to economic self-sufficiency, while serving each family that experiences homelessness in a manner that embraces the dignity and strength of the family. Since May of 2013, Family Promise North Shore Boston has worked with local faith groups, dedicated staff and hundreds of volunteers to further their mission of housing families and helping them get back on their feet.

“No Place to Go When It’s Cold: Finding Solutions for Homeless in our Community” will take place Wednesday, January 10, from 7-8 pm at the FRS Parish Hall located at 26 Pleasant Street in Newburyport as part of their First Wednesday Program.
