UWGAT’s Days of Caring is a way for local businesses and organizations to volunteer in the community for a specific community service project. UWGAT facilitates Days of Caring by collecting projects and pairing volunteers with agencies.
Project Homeless Connect (PHC) is a national initiative sponsored by the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness and is now implemented in various cities across the United States. The mission of Project Homeless Connect is to rally service providers and volunteers from our local communities to support this one-day event to help create lasting solutions for individuals and families experiencing homelessness or at-risk of becoming homeless. The Greater Bristol County Attleboro/Taunton Coalition to End Homelessness (GBCATCH) in collaboration with UWGAT are organizing this event.

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.
