Two weeks ago, DHCD announced plans to stop offering HomeBASE to families applying for shelter and would continue to only offer shelter to families who are homeless due to fire, natural disaster, and domestic violence and to parents under the age of 21. These plans were halted but changes to HomeBASE are still very likely. This community meeting will focus on:
– The current condition of HomeBASE
– Why the program may change and a discussion of possible changes to the HomeBASE program
– Advocacy strategies to ensure families are housed and are provided with assistance.
Open to both Providers and Families
