We did it! And your donation helped -- thank you!

Families and individuals who are homeless will again be able to receive support in finding housing through the Passages Case Management Program.

While this service was suspended for July and August due to lack of funds, we successfully raised enough funds for it to resume in September, right after Labor Day.

This essential service of the Somerville Homeless Coalition received support from scores of individual donors -- including you -- thank you!

Your support helped us leverage additional funding from the City of Somerville's Affordable Housing Trust Fund. They have granted SHC with $275,000 over the next two years to restore this service.

Thank you.

You are a life saver!

Your generous gift to support the Passages Case Management program makes a world of difference to the men, women and children who are homeless.  Your gift will help ensure that we have case managers to provide the support and guidance they need to help them get housed – thank you.

Your gift is also a great morale booster for our staff who are committed to helping others, even in the face of funding cuts from the federal government -- thank you.

Your support helps make sure our community’s safety net is strong and available to everyone in need.  We are truly grateful for your continued partnership in our mission to help those who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

On behalf of our board of directors, staff, and especially the clients you help us serve, thank you for your support -- we couldn't do this work without you.

Sincerely,

Kathryn Benjamin, Director of Development

Thank you! Your generous donation to help the families displaced by the fire on Rush Street is helping right away to help cover temporary housing expenses and to replace personal items that are needed immediately like food, clothing, and medicines.

The outpouring of support has been immediate and strong -- qualities of our wonderful community. Your care and concern are a source of hope and comfort.

Staff of the Somerville Homeless Coalition, along with those from many departments in the City, other human service agencies, and other community groups are working with the families to be sure they have a place to stay, food to eat, clothes to wear -- they lost everything in the fire.

Your quick and generous response means so much to the men, women and children affected by this fire, thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Kathryn Benjamin
Director of Development
