Pittsfield Seeks Solutions to Daytime Warming Shelters for Homeless
By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Mayor Linda Tyer this week said the city of Pittsfield is feeling discouraged from the lack of community organizations willing to host a warming shelter that will house homeless individuals during the hours that the St. Joseph's temporary winter shelter on Maplewood Avenue is closed.
"We're concerned too, and we're feeling quite discouraged that a number of our community partners have declined our request to help with a daytime warming center but we're not going to give up," she said at Tuesday's City Council meeting.
Ward 7 Councilor Anthony Maffuccio addressed the mayor with two petitions in regard to the homeless population.
Maffuccio requested that the mayor, or other departments or organizations, provide an update on the plans for a warming station for the homeless and that the mayor develops a task force for the purpose of developing a permanent housing solution for chronically homeless residents.
These petitions were both referred to Tyer by the council.
