Free and open to the public.
We are excited to invite you to join us to our kick off meeting for the Shelter and Homeless round table discussion on October 26th at 5-6 pm
The mission of the round table is to raise awareness to the problem of providing shelters to displaced people including the homeless population through data, research, and community outreach with the goal of solving the problem.
The goal is to develop a better understanding of the state, extent, and causes of the lack of shelter and the homelessness in the greater Boston area through both qualitative and quantitative research and analysis.
For this first session we will introduce topics related to the problem and hear from panelists from the Mass Housing and Shelter Alliance, Boston Public Health Commission, Shelter provider and local educational institutions.
