The mayors of Dover, Rochester, and Somersworth are teaming up to address homelessness.
The mayors are putting together a homelessness task force that will include city officials, business leaders, and local non-profits.
Dover Mayor Karen Weston says the collaboration stems from a recent effort to establish a warming shelter during a cold snap.
“Because of the 10 or 14 days where we had sub-zero temperatures, many people became aware of these folks in these tent cities that are freezing.”
One of the goals of the task force will be to establish a permanent warming shelter for the region.
