The Old Colony YMCA provides two programs for families experiencing homelessness. The David Jon Louison Center serves 19 families (approximately 19 women and 47 children). This program provides emergency shelter and housing, case management and support services to families in order to reach a higher level of self-sufficiency. CDBG funds are used to support this program.
CDBG funds are used to provide salaries and related expenses in connection with the provision of structured recreational and instructional programs at the Old Colony YMCA Cosgrove Pool.
Camp Massasoit provides a safe and enriching experience for children from low- and moderate-income families to participate in summer camp. The camp assists in the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual growth of campers in a healthy outdoor environment. CDBG funds are used to help provided transportation to and from the camp.
