Housing Families Inc (HFI) is a non-profit organization in Malden that is working to keep families housed as well as provide emergency shelters, tutoring and counseling for homeless children and parents, and help increase the number of low income housing opportunities. Their goal is to end family homelessness and expand opportunities to those in need.
The organization was created in 1986 based on concerns from the communities of the Greater Boston cities, such as Malden, Medford, Everett, Revere and many other cities. Since their first shelter in 1987, HFI has come a long way and has advanced in their ability to change the lives of many families.
HFI not only works towards helping families have housing opportunities, but also recognizes the importance of providing counseling and education for the children in these families. They offer an after-school tutoring and summer enrichment components.
