BENEFITING: Homestart

ORGANIZER: Homestart

EVENT DATE: Feb 28, 2013

Gregory Grays-Thomas

THE STORY:

I have to raise $250 to ride, but HomeStart can move an individual or family from a shelter (or worst) into a permanent home for $1,030.  So if I raise $1,030, my ride will be the reason a family is in a home this winter.  Please help me get a family in a home!

ABOUT HOMESTART:

Founded on the principle that every person deserves a decent place to live, HomeStart provides the crucial next step to ending the cycle of homelessness by working to assist individuals and families move from shelters to permanent housing.

HomeStart advocates provide support and compassion as they help walk clients through the difficult process of moving from shelters to permanent housing. After securing housing, HomeStart continues to help each participant re-integrate into their community by providing support services such as money management programs and life skills training.

HomeStart also provides housing-search guidance to those who do not qualify to become a client during walk-in hours at both the Central Boston and Cambridge offices.

HomeStart is also one of the first and one of the largest agencies in Boston that ends homelessness by preventing it in the first place. Our advocates prevented 568 low-income families and individuals on the verge of eviction from being homeless, by using innovative approaches such as – emergency mini grants, court intervention, and landlord mediation. For HomeStart to prevent an eviction it costs on average $603. It costs taxpayers approximately $30,000 a year to shelter that same family.

Having a home restores a person’s dignity and offers the stability that is necessary for making other life changes, such as securing a job, advancing an education, regaining mental health stability, or maintaining sobriety. That’s why at HomeStart, we believe a home is where the start is.
