THE STORY:

I'm running the Boston Marathon for HomeStart.

What is HomeStart?

HomeStart ends and prevents homelessness.

If you're homeless, HomeStart is your realtor. Much like a real estate agency, HomeStart helps you find permanent housing by assessing your background, financial ability, and a variety of other factors. But once HomeStart puts you in a home, they make sure you stay there. HomeStart provides stabalization services like money management, life skills training, etc. to make sure that you re-integrate into the community and never become homeless again.

That's how HomeStart ends current homelessness, but HomeStart also prevents it before it starts. If you're on the verge of losing your home, HomeStart offers emergency assistance that helps you stay in the home and avoid costly taxpayer shelters. Usually HomeStart can keep a family in a home for $700, while moving that family into a shelter, could cost taxpayers upwards of $40,000 (nevermind the moral cost.)
