Housing First Program: Know Someone Who Has Been Chronically Homeless? ACC Might Have Housing for Them!

  • ACC's Office 121 North Pleasant Street Amherst, MA, 01004 United States (map)

ACC is pleased to announce that it will begin its Housing First Program this fall. Thanks to the recommendation of Amherst Community Preservation Act Committee, Amherst Town Meeting approved a $150,000 three-year grant to ACC to begin a housing first program. 

Three housing vouchers will be made available to Amherst residents who have been chronically homeless. ACC will provide wrap-around support service to the tenants with the goal of assisting them to get into long term stable housing and become valuable members in local communities. 

A talk by Hwei-Ling Greeney of Amherst Community Connections.
