HOMELESSNESS

“The first step to assist individuals experiencing homelessness within the New Bedford, Fall River, Taunton and Attleboro areas of Massachusetts is to make THE CALL: 1-800-HOMELESS (1-800-466-3537) from a 508 or 774 area code.”

Homes With Heart is a HUD grant–funded program under the auspices of Community Counseling of Bristol County and Attleboro Area Interfaith Collaborative.

Our organizations have worked together since 2010 on programming that assists with homelessness. The Homes With Heart program leases scattered site apartments in the greater Attleboro area that are accessible by public transportation. This program uses the Housing First model and offers services and treatment to people in their homes or, if the client is able, at a local provider. As members of Greater Bristol County / Attleboro / Taunton Coalition to End Homelessness (GBCATCH), CCBC and AAIC prioritize efforts around homelessness, housing, social justice and health equity.
