Somerville Ho… SAYS:
Thank you for your generous …
Thank you for your generous sponsorship donation in support of our 13th Annual Save Our Homes Walk to be held on Sunday, May 22nd. Your donation will help support dozens of our fellow Somerville residents in securing stable housing.

We are fortunate to have both homelessness prevention and affordable housing services in our City. One significant gap, however, remains quick access to emergency cash grants that have proven to be very successful in preventing displacement. There are many factors to people facing a housing crisis, such as loss of employment, domestic violence and escalating rents, but through our intervention, over 90% of the people we assist have been able to remain in their current housing or relocate to more adequate housing with modest cash assistance and some money management strategies.

We realize without partnerships such as yours this would not be possible. We look forward to your continued support and hope to achieve greater success each year with your help.

Thank you again for your support of the Save Our Homes Walk.

Thank you! Your generous donation to help the families and individuals displaced by the fire on Rush Street is helping right away to 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
Somerville Homeless Coalition
