NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire Community Coalition (NBCC) announced that they will support the work of the Louison House by giving the organization a one-time gift of $20,000.
The funds came to the NBCC through the New England Rural Health Association.
NBCC believes, that in light of the current rise in housing insecurity within the region, these funds are best utilized to support the Louison House, which provides services to individuals and families experiencing homelessness.
These funds are intended to provide 6 months of emergency sheltering and supportive services to those experiencing housing insecurity and homelessness during the winter months.
After conversations with the Louison House to understand the needs within the community and where there are gaps in current funding for the organization, it was decided that these funds would prioritize families experiencing homelessness, and, individuals and/or families that are presented to the Northern Berkshire HUB Table due to acutely elevated risk, including homelessness.
NBCC would like to thank the New England Rural Health Association for funding NBCC as a rural, community based organization and enabling us to share those resources, to support our local partners.
