 From Senator Dean Tran — on Thursday, May 23, 2019

One of the priorities of mine during this budget season is helping those who are experiencing homelessness in my district. I am happy to announce the passage of two of my amendments, #498 and #355, which would do just that.

Amendment #498 provides $50,000 to North Star Community Services in Leominster, Massachusetts(formerly known as Montachusett Interfaith Hospitality Network). For those of you who may not know, North Star Community Services is a local non-profit that provides shelter, meals, and assistance services to homeless families with children. This organization also works with local organizations and church groups to increase community involvement to help provide the services that these less fortunate families need. North Star is the only homeless family shelter in the Worcester County and they have an excellent record of success helping families get back on their feet.

Amendment #355 provides $10,000 to The Spanish American Center, Inc. in Leominster, Massachusetts. The Leominster Spanish American Center was founded in 1966 and has been a constant presence in the community ever since. The Center provides meals for the homeless and disadvantaged. I am happy to have these amendments adopted and look forward to the good they will do for the district.

 Thank You Senator! Muchas Gracias!
