BENEFITING: Somerville Homeless Coalition, Inc.
I'm running to support the Somerville Homeless Coalition because I know how much my own home means to me. Having a place to sleep, eat, have friends over, gather with family, or just be alone is something that everyone deserves but not everyone has. A home provides security, community, privacy and a lot more. The Somerville Homeless Coalition works to prevent and address homelessness, and their impact extends beyond Somerville. 30 years ago, SHC started with six beds in one shelter. In 2015, SHC served over 2,000 people, including 665 children from 999 households - and increased the number of individuals served by 60% from the previous year. The SHC Road Race is a chance to help provide food and shelter to individuals and families in the greater Somerville area. Join me in supporting the Somerville Homeless Coalition!
