Our mission at Heading Home is simple: to end homelessness in Boston. How do we do this? By providing a supported pathway to self-sufficiency that begins with a home, together with critical services such as life skills, financial literacy, and job training. We provide emergency, transitional and permanent housing, and support services to low-income homeless and formerly homeless individuals and families in the Greater Boston area... and it's working.
We are a nationally recognized leader in our field. 90+% of families that we place in permanent housing remain housed, as has been the case for 11 consecutive years. We have placed over 700 families in permanent housing over the past ten years, and serve 1,600+ people annually. We engage hundreds of donors and volunteers in order to make these amazing strides against the growing problem of homelessness in our community. By supporting Heading Home through the Boston Marathon, you are directly contributing to a better future for your neighbors and friends in need!
