ORGANIZER: Homestart

EVENT DATE: Feb 28, 2013

John Hussey

THE STORY:

Hello Friends,

Thanks for showing an interest in HomeStart and ICycle 2013.  I serve on the Board of HomeStart and am the Co-Chair of this awesome event this year.  ICycle tries to give people an idea, if only for one hour, of what it is like to be homeless in the city during Winter.  I will be "spinning" for 1 hour outside at International Place.

My goal is to raise $4120 this year.  It costs HomeStart $1030 to move a family out of a shelter (or the street) and into a home.  Importantly, we have over a 95% success rate, meaning once we help these people find housing, they almost always stay in that housing.  I want to help provide that gift to four families this Winter.  I hope you can help me reach this goal.  You can donate by clicking on the Donate button on my page, by bringing a check to the event, or by heading over to www.homestart.org.

Thanks everybody!

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.
