Youth homelessness is a persistent problem in the City of Lowell. Community Teamwork estimates that there are over 100 young people in Lowell each year who are experiencing homelessness for a variety of reasons including family conflict and abuse, sexual identity, pregnancy, addiction or mental health issues, contact with the juvenile justice system or aging out of foster care.
To help combat this issue and to provide support to these young people in our community, Mayor Ed Kennedy has launched a new fundraising effort and we hope that you will join with us to help make it a success!
Suggested donation of $20 per ticket
All proceeds from the event will be donated to Community Teamwork and their efforts as the lead agency for the Merrimack Valley Youth Consortium that works to prevent youth homelessness. This program has been working with teens to help them reunite with their families, or find safe affordable housing on their own. In many cases it is simply a matter of helping a young person with a security deposit or to clear up past debts that can save them from spending years couch surfing, sleeping in their cars or in places not fit for human habitation.
Over 12 local bands have already agreed to donate their time and talent to this inaugural event, including our featured performer and Lowell’s native son, Gary Hoey!
