The city will receive more than $1.2 million in stimulus funds to combat homelessness through a federal program announced Tuesday. The city has contracted with four local nonprofits to aid local residents who are homeless or in danger of losing their homes, and the $1.2 million represents the largest homelessness prevention grant Fall River has received.
In an effort to build a strong coalition of support to end homelessness in the Western Mass region, outreach occurred to faith-based communities across 4 counties during the summer and fall. The outcomes have been amazing!
