Homes For Families will be holding its annual Cookie Day, dedicated to bringing awareness of the importance of the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP) to our legislators in the State House. MRVP is a crucial tool for preventing family homelessness in Massachusetts, and Cookie Day aims to increase funding for the program in the FY 2018 state budget. 

Why Cookie Day? Advocates who visit their legislator's offices bring along cookies (cookies are provided) for legislators and their staff. These cookies make for a fun and memorable visit!

City Mission is proud to join in this important work. If you are interested in participating, RSVP to dhillerbrand@citymissionboston.org and come to our offices at 14 Beacon Street at 9:45am on the 8th for some refreshments, fellowship, and a brief orientation. You can also attend a preparatory webinar to learn more about the MRVP program and some tips for effective advocacy on Wednesday, February 1 at 4:00pm. Contact dhillerbrand@citymissionboston.org for more information about the webinar, or to receive a recording of the webinar if you can't make it on Feb 1st.

The MRVP program is an effective tool for ensuring that low-income Massachusetts families have safe and affordable places to live; in fact, rental voucher programs like MRVP have been shown to be one of the most cost-effective means of preventing family homelessness. Need in MA, however, is far greater than current funding. 

Help us make the case for MRVP and join us at Cookie Day on February 8th!
