Yesterday, the Lynn Continuum of Care (COC) held its Annual Meeting and Awards Breakfast. Over 25 local organizations are part of the Lynn COC including Bridgewell and all work in collaboration to end homelessness. Bridgewell’s Elaine White, Director of Housing, serves as President of the Executive Board.
During the meeting, scholarships were presented to Gilley Kabamba who will be attending Bridgewater State University and Emmanuel Kalambayi who will attending Franklin Pierce University. Both young men excelled academically and athletically. Both gave back to their community while struggling with unstable living situations. This is the 2nd year the COC has committed to this scholarship program.
Dianne Kuzia Hills was the recipient of the Beacon Of Hope Award. Dianne has worked more than 25 years advocating for the needs of the Homeless in the City of Lynn. She is a champion for the underserved. Dianne is the Executive Director of My Brother’s Table.
Thank you to all the members of the Lynn COC for all their hard work to end homelessness!
