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.
To help combat this issue and to provide support to these young people in our community, Mayor Bill Samaras is continuing and building upon last year’s very successful Mayor’s Holiday Fest for Homeless Youth and we hope that you will join with us to help make it an even bigger success!
Last year’s Holiday Fest raised $18,000 (and the year before $11,000) that will be donated to CTI’s Youth Services Program designed with youth and young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 in mind. The program offers Transitional Housing Opportunities, Rapid Rehousing, Community Connections and work closely with UMass Lowell and Middlesex Community College as part of their College Engagement programming. The team has been working hard to connect with youth and young adults (YYA), identify community resources and work towards stabilization.Their mission is to provide supportive and comprehensive services to some of the estimated 150-250 young adults in the region who are at risk or currently struggling with housing instability each year.
Band lineup available online featuring 10 bands and various artists from around Lowell.
