We are the safety net for people who are about to become homeless in Somerville and Arlington.
Funds raised by this event will be used by families who are about to become homeless, to buy them some time and tide them over a rough patch.
Your donation will help pay rent and utility bills so a family won't get evicted for those reasons.
For about $1,000 we can help a family stay in their home and not become homeless. It costs up to $36,000 a year for a family to be sheltered in Massachusetts. Clearly, prevention is much more cost effective!
