An array of social service and government agencies throughout western Massachusetts have been enlisted to join the fight against homelessness.

To achieve the goal of making homelessness rare and brief, they must overcome obstacles including a growing shortage of affordable housing in Massachusetts.

Close to 200 people who are working on the problem of homelessness met earlier this week in Holyoke to network and share information. 

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Pamela Schwartz, director of the Western Massachusetts Network to End Homelessness.
