Housing Advocacy in Action!
With the 2018 legislative session well underway, homelessness and housing advocates are reaching out to legislators asking them to preserve resources that are critical to maintaining the gains we have made in ending homelessness. Over 50 providers and advocates have submitted testimony, and many have come to Hartford to testify in support of investments through the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services and The Department of Housing to end homelessness in Connecticut.
Please make sure to mark your calendar for March 7th & March 8th, the 2018 Homelessness and Housing Advocacy Days, when advocates representing each of the 8 CAN regions meet with legislators and make our case to preserve, protect, and defend the resources you need to do this important work.
