SoCo Update


UWGAT Announces State Funding

United Way of Greater Attleboro/Taunton, Inc. (UWGAT) on behalf of the South Coast Regional Network to End Homelessness (SoCo) is pleased to announce that it is the recipient of $50,000 in the Massachusetts State budget to facilitate the coordination and implementation of support programs protecting families and individuals experiencing homelessness. SoCo continues to be UWGAT’s highly successful income and financial stability initiative, partnering with many Bristol County stakeholders committed to identifying and implementing creative strategies to ending homelessness. This funding is critical for SoCo to continue its unique role, and to provide a template for multi-faceted and coordinated strategies to prevent and end homelessness in and beyond Bristol County.

SoCo continues to provide and promote collaborative leadership at all levels of government and across all sectors to inspire and energize us all to commit to preventing and ending homelessness. Additionally, SoCo hopes by increasing knowledge regarding collaboration and successful interventions, these efforts will in turn strengthen the capacity of public and private organizations which will further foster independence and economic self-sufficiency.

United Way of Greater Attleboro/Taunton and the South Coast Regional Network to End Homelessness greatly appreciates Senator Michael Rodrigues’ (Co-chair of SoCo’s Leadership Council) work on adding the funding to the state budget and to all Bristol County legislators for endorsing and supporting this critical funding. Thank you for your vote of confidence.
