Your Gift’s Impact

Every day, Housing Families is working to end family homelessness in Massachusetts. By donating to Housing Families, you are supporting the many programs we offer homeless and at-risk children and families.

Here’s what donors like you accomplished in fiscal year 2016:

  • Served more than 750 families, including more than 900 children
  • Transitioned 64 families out of shelter and into permanent affordable housing
  • Prevented 246 evictions – that means families who never had to experience homelessness at all!
  • Provided 174 children with academic tutoring and therapeutic counseling in our GREAT Youth and Families Program, including 63 new kids.
