The Coalition coordinates two monthly advocacy committee meetings: the Homeless Youth Providers Engaging Together (HYPET) meetings and the Housing and Benefits Committee meetings. The meetings convene providers, advocates, and people with lived experience of homelessness and housing instability to mobilize participation in our public policy campaigns and to share information from colleagues in the field about promising programs and practices, new resources, legislative initiatives, and more.
* Since March 2020, we have been holding meetings via Zoom in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will provide additional details here once in-person meetings safely can resume.**
In non-pandemic times, HYPET meetings generally are held on the second Thursday of each month from September-July in Boston, with conference call capacity. Our meetings are held at the State House in the Massachusetts State Library’s 4th floor conference room. View our online calendar for upcoming meeting dates, and see a sample agenda (PDF) here. See the HYPET image below for more details. You can RSVP for the next meeting online here or by emailing Luke. *
In non-pandemic times, Housing and Benefits Committee meetings generally are held on the final Friday of each month September-July in Boston (with alternative dates for November and December), across from the State House at Church on the Hill, 140 Bowdoin Street, 2nd floor.
