As I start to compile the regional data for the Network for FY12, I am truly impressed at the quality of the work being done by all of partnering providers. The sheer volume of output, as a collective, is dizzying!
Community Teamwork’s Housing Consumer Education Center in partnership with the Merrimack Valley Regional Network to End Homelessness, Greater Lawrence Community and Community Action, Inc have joined forces to expand Housing Workshops and resources across Northeastern Massachusetts. Workshops are geared to clients, advocates and community members.
We have updated our Housing & Consumer Education Workshop page which includes two new workshop series.
Financial Assistance Workshop – This workshop will provide participants with a brief overview of services offered at Community Teamwork, information regarding eligibility criteria for various financial resources available through the Housing Consumer Education Center and will outline the documents required for application for financial assistance. All clients seeking financial assistance will participate in this ½ workshop prior to seeing a Housing Counselor. Classes occur the CTI Resource Ctr, 17 Kirk St, Lowell and happens daily at 12pm and Wednesdays at 5pm. Preregistration is not required for this class.
Financial Recovery Workshop – This workshop will identify steps you can take to recover financially and rebuild your credit after experiencing a financial setback. Starting on October, classes will occur the CTI Resource Ctr, 17 Kirk St, Lowell and every Wednesday at 10am. Starting in November, this workshop will be offered each Tuesday at 5pm. Preregistration is not required for this class.
In addition, we have added a new page to the MVRN blog which encapsulates all of the Subsidized and Affordable Housing opportunities in Merrimack Valley- Northeastern Massachusetts
So, take a look around, email, phone or stop in for one of our workshops!
