Congressman Neguse to Hold 5th Service Town Hall at Broomfield FISH Family Resource Center

August 19, 2019
Press Release

Washington D.C.— Congressman Joe Neguse will hold his 5th service town hall at the Broomfield Fellowship in Serving Humanity (FISH) Family Resource Center on August 26th. The Congressman launched the first-of-its-kind service town hall initiative in March and has held events at Bridge House Boulder, Rocky Mountain National Park, Boulder Shelter for the Homeless and the Larimer Humane Society since then. At Monday’s event he will be joined by Representative Matt Gray and Councilwoman Guyleen Castriotta. The event will be the Congressman’s 21st town hall since taking office and 5th “service town hall”. The initiative provides a unique opportunity to partner with local non-profits throughout the district and encourage greater civic and community engagement from attendees of the town hall events.

“The success of our service town hall initiative has been truly heartening. I am constantly inspired by community residents who come out to get involved in the political process while also serving their fellow Coloradans.” said Congressman Neguse. “I’m excited to partner with Broomfield FISH Family Resource Center which does fantastic work providing support and services to Broomfield families and I’m honored to be joined by Representative Matt Gray and Councilwoman Guyleen Castriotta for our event next week. I look forward to learning more about the organization and how our community can better support Colorado families in need”

“Is there poverty in Broomfield?  Absolutely. The families who visit FISH typically work at least one full-time job, but earn less than $2,000/month and pay more than 70% of their income on housing costs,” said Dayna Scott, Executive Director of Broomfield FISH. “It only takes one crisis—a health issue, a layoff from a job, a large car repair—to put families on the verge of homelessness. In 2018, FISH helped more than 6,000 unduplicated residents through our programs. We look forward to collaborating with Congressman Neguse on systems-level solutions to end hunger and homelessness in Colorado!”

“I’m excited to join my friend Congressman Neguse to serve our Broomfield neighbors in need,” said Representative Matt Gray. “I look forward to hearing about his work in Washington as we work together to make our community a better place.”
