As homelessness continues on an upward trend due to home foreclosures and the sluggish economy, one local organization is doing all it can to aid those in need.
For 25 years, Housing Families Inc., a Malden-based nonprofit company, has provided emergency housing and eviction prevention services for 105 families spread throughout Everett, Malden, Medford, and Revere. And of those families, 34 are in Revere. Indeed, Housing Families Inc. has been part of the Revere community fabric for over a decade, operating a shelter at Walnut Place.
