On Thursday, May 1st, the South Coast Regional Network to End Homelessness in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Veterans’ Services hosted a forum at White's of Westport to discuss and better understand the emerging best practices in preventing and ending homelessness among veterans in Bristol County.
The forum allowed the opportunity to learn about current policies and services available for Veterans, as well as, opportunities to share and brainstorm ideas to strengthen collaborations between homeless service providers and Veteran Service Officers throughout the area.
The forum was geared specifically to Bristol County Veteran Service Officers, Homeless Program Case Managers, Veteran Program Specialists, and any other programs that provide services to Veterans and their families.
Thank you to all that spoke and attended the event.
