Refreshments and discussion will follow the presentation.

ROOF, a tax deductible organization, plans to help reduce homelessness in the Amesbury, Newburyport and Salisbury area by acquiring residential properties that will serve as transitional homes for homeless families. The properties will be managed by local service organizations that work with homeless families. ROOF'S focus is homeless families, notably the children who are so traumatically impacted by homelessness. ROOF was established in September 2009 by area residents concerned about the growing leevel of homelessness in our communities.

PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND! THE MEETING IS OPEN TO ALL!
