New Data on Family Homelessness in Massachusetts

Last week Episcopal City Mission hosted The Paul and Phyllis Fireman Charitable Foundation's luncheon to announce the release of "Ending Family Homelessness in Massachusetts," the result of recently commissioned research and strategic thinking from nationally-recognized expert, Dr. Dennis Culhane. ECM was proud to be part of this exciting event and to continue to partner with the Fireman Foundation in their campaign to end family homelessness in Massachusetts.

The report lays out ways in which the state’s Emergency Assistance (EA) program could be reformed to help stretch public resources and serve more families. To view the Executive Summary and full report, "Ending Family Homelessness in Massachusetts," Click Here.

The report states that by encouraging key shifts in thinking and practice, and by implementing principles to guide reform, important family homelessness programs will better support innovative service providers so they can focus on prevention, rapid re-housing, and stabilization.
