THE STORY:

FamilyAid Boston wrote -

FamilyAid Boston (formerly Travelers Aid Family Services) is a social service agency that works to prevent families from becoming homeless and to help those who are already homeless obtain permanent housing.

Our case managers also help families obtain employment as well as teach them the skills that will help them remain in permanent housing after they have left our care. Using a comprehensive case-management approach, we strive to ensure that all families in Boston have homes.

The Greater Boston area is one of the most expensive places to live in the country. Families must earn no more than 115% of the federal poverty level ($26,508 for a family of 4) to access state-run shelter programs, yet it costs nearly three times that amount to support a family of 4 in this area.

Due in large part to these conditions, families are the fastest growing portion of the homeless population. FamilyAid Boston offers:

In the last year, FamilyAid Boston helped 772 homeless and at-risk families, including 927 parents and 1,698 children.

For the last two years, FamilyAid Boston has partnered with the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program. Our marathon teams have raised more than $45,000 to help support Boston's homeless and at-risk families.

Now that you have learned a bit more about FamilyAid Boston's mission, please allow me to add to that story.

In 2008 I had to leave my home due to financial circumstances beyond my control. Having to do so caused me to uproot my way of living and within the next 3 years I would find myself going from place to place. Many people helped me during each transition phase. Without them, I would have no idea where I would be right now. Thankfully in early 2011 I landed on my feet. To that end I can feel for the needs of those supported by FamilyAid Boston.

FamilyAid Boston is a haven for those lacking resources that will allow them to properly adjust to those times and events. Even more important, they attempt to stave off those events through education, employment assistance and other measures. I'm glad to be partnered up with such a group so I can share in a common goal.

I'm looking forward to this fundraising campaign, the event on March 30th and to running in my first official Boston Marathon.

Thank you in advance for supporting this cause, for reaching out to let others know of this event and for keeping FamilyAid Boston supported during the coming months.

DONATION: $115

In this long journey over 115 donations were made, many in which went into a single contribution I did for collective donations made at the fundraising event. For this reason, I am donating another $115 to FamilyAid Boston. This will FUEL my senses as I approach Marathon Day knowing that so many people have touched me and supported such a wonderful organization. Thank You. 5 years ago
