The social service providers of the greater Upper Valley region, particularly those who work in the fields of emergency housing and homes with supportive services, are valuable and necessary support systems for residents, families, and communities. Ensuring safe and stable homes for all is a bedrock strategy for strengthening communities. The region needs to do more to understand the need for these services, as well as maintain, expand, and improve upon them for the flourishing of all in this region.  

We have come to identify critical actions we recommend social services providers review. These do not include all important actions.
