CU pays heating costs of 29 near-homeless families
LYNN, Mass. (2/6/08)--A credit union is partnering with a Massachusetts organization to help 29 near-homeless households pay heating costs for February. Brotherhood CU, a $110.9 million asset credit union in Lynn, Mass., is working with the Massachusetts Coalition for the Homeless and its First Stop program, an early warming system for reaching households before they become homeless (The Daily Item Feb. 5). According to credit union President James Sherman, many neighbors are struggling to stay warm this winter and could be in jeopardy of becoming homeless. He noted homelessness not only means the loss of a place for someone to call home, but also holds ramifications for jobs, children's education and community stability. Credit unions across the state have been committed to finding long-term solutions, said Robyn Frost, coalition director. Their support goes beyond financial support in finding true solutions to end homelessness and ensure long-term housing stability, Frost said.
