Meeting – Coalition for Health and Well Being @ Community Room, HealthFirst Family Care Center
Aug 15 @ 8:30 am

The Greater Fall River Coalition for Health and Well Being is an ad hoc group formed in response to the challenges posed by homeless families living in local motels while they await placement in permanent housing. Members of the group meet to continue their ongoing discussion of strategies to assist the families. The group is working on providing resources and assistance with accessing medical care, finding donations of clothing and personal care items, transportation, and options for recreation for the children who are living in very restrictive environments. Anyone with an interest in problem-solving for this at-risk population is welcome to attend the meetings.

Coordinator: Wendy Garf-Lipp (508-324-7900, Ext. 103)

Meeting Time: Usually the third Wednesday of the month at 8:30 a.m. Contact Wendy to confirm the date and time of the next meeting
