Senator Eldridge Makes Court Filing to Help Afghan Refugees
- April 5, 2022
Harvard, MA – State Senator Jamie Eldridge filed an amicus brief in Worcester Probate and Family Court in support of the town of Harvard’s interest to change the trust governing the Bromfield House, to allow the vacant historical house to be used for people to live in, so that Harvard can place some of the Afghan families living in Harvard there.
The amicus brief strongly urges the Court to allow an Afghan refugee family to live in the vacant Bromfield House as part of the Town of Harvard’s initiative to secure housing for the Afghan refugee families still in need of housing. An amicus brief is known as a “friend of the court” brief where a non-party advocates for a particular court decision.
