February 14th is "Have a Heart: Help End Unaccompanied Youth Homelessness Call-In Day" to the House Ways & Means Committee. Encourage the House Ways & Means to support House Bill 3838 (formerly House Bill 1862) by giving it a favorable report and asking that the House of Representatives swiftly pass it.

This is the bill mentioned in the MACUCC's Resolution to End Homelessness Among Youth and Young Adults in Massachusetts passed at the 2011 Annual Meeting. Read the resolution here.

February 29th is the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless Legislative Action Day at the State House. Members of the MACUCC are invited to attend or to call in to their state legislators that day in light of the Unacccompanied Youth Resolution, and urge passage of Bill H.3838. If you wish to attend Legislative Action Day, you may register on line at the Coalition's website.

Rev. Dr. Peter Wells, Associate Conference Minister, will speak on the subject of unaccompanied homeless youth, and will share with participants how the MA Conference became involved in this issue and why it is important for other faith communities (and beyond) to work together to end unaccompanied youth homelessness.
