More than 20 members attended a Housing Trust Fund (HTF) outreach session in Sept. at Boston City Hall. "Several members stated they were unaware of the programs and expressed interest in benefits like the Emergency Assistance and Home Improvement programs," said Rachel Idowu a former Local 888 member who helps staff the Housing Trust.

"The meeting helped spread the word about a truly unique benefit," said Trust Administrator Ashana Ward. "The HTF was negotiated through the perseverance of union leaders determined to raise the quality of life for members who work for and reside in the City of Boston."
Informational sessions for BPHC members are planned for Oct. 18 from 12-3 PM at 1010 Mass Ave, 2nd Floor Hayes Room and Oct. 20 from 2-4 PM at 112 Southampton St. in the Staff Lounge.
