Travelers Aid Family services is proud to partner with the John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program for the second consecutive year. Our "Run To End Family Homelessness" Marathon Team raised more than $20,000 in its first year, a total we're working to beat this April WITH YOUR HELP! The mission of Travelers Aid Family Services is to end the crisis of family homelessness in Boston, which has been increasing over the last several years. Our Continuum of Care offers a variety of solutions to this complex problem, including: homelessness prevention, 24/7 emergency shelter, transitional housing, and emergency transportation. Coupled with additional supportive services administered by our employment counselors, affordable housing search workers, and long-term housing stabilization case managers, Travelers Aid Family Services provided critical assistance to more than 850 families and 4,200 fathers, mothers, and children in just the last year. With your support we will be able to serve even more of Boston’s most vulnerable families this year.
