The following message is from Coalition co-chair (and co-founder) Jan Van Tassel at the Connecticut Legal Rights Project (CLRP):
WE ARE OPEN FOR LEGAL ASSISTANCE IN HOUSING ADVOCACY AGAIN!
As a result of powerful and persistent advocacy from a broad range of individuals and organizations, CLRP received funding in the state budget to continue our statewide housing advocacy for DMHAS clients known as the HOME Project. This could not have been accomplished without the energy and support of every one of you, and the staff at CLRP deeply appreciate your efforts.
Also, we are trying to get personal expressions of thanks to those who testified, called, e-mailed, or otherwise intervened to express support. So please let me know if there is an individual or organization that should be so recognized.
