The Lynn Continuum of Care held its Annual Meeting and Awards Breakfast on Thursday, June 21, 2018. The event is sponsored by Bridgewell and Lynn Housing Authority and Neighborhood Development. The new slate of officers and board members were elected.
Continuum of Care (CoC) Programs combine state funds with federal funds obtained from HUD through an annual competitive application to provide homeless assistance services and supported housing programs for primarily long-term homeless individuals and families with one or multiple disabilities.
Scholarships were presented to Walter Elias Nolasco and Lucy Figueroa who will both be continuing their education at North Shore Community College in the fall. Elias and Lucy are pictured below with Bridgewell’s Director of Housing Elaine White.
The Beacon of HOPE Award was presented to Tim Driscoll, the Homeless Services Coordinator for the Bedford VA. Tim has been instrumental in working with the CoC to end veteran’s homelessness.
The morning featured a presentation by the SKILLS USA chapter of Lynn Vocational Technical Institute.
