Funds are urgently needed for emergency housing, eviction defense, legal need, and transitional support.
There's a growing housing crisis facing MetroWest's Immigrant population. Many of our neighbors find themselves facing eviction and homelessness during this pandemic winter.
Massachusetts ended its eviction moratorium in October, unleashing scores of attempted evictions—legal and illegal. And the stopgap Federal eviction moratorium is set to expire December 31. Local immigrant communities have suffered loss of work, leading to food, healthcare and housing insecurity. State and Federal pandemic relief programs have been inaccessible and insufficient.
With COVID cases skyrocketing, and area housing/shelter opportunities shrinking, many people turn to already overcrowded apartments and shelters, threatening to increase COVID cases among a population already hit hard by the pandemic. And many have NO access to other resources.
Please, give what you can to help MetroWest’s immigrant community stay housed and healthy this holiday season, and beyond.
