Homeless and in Hotels in Greenfield

(Greenfield, MA) – An influx of homeless families in the town of Greenfield will be the focus of a public forum Monday night. The Greenfield Human Rights Commission will host the forum, which will address the logistical and economic concerns of a state decision to house close to 100 families in Greenfield-area hotels. Commission Chair Lew Metaxas says he hopes the forum will attract a cross-section of opinions, and will be the first step in developing a dialogue between the town and state regarding the relocation of homeless families.
