What We Do

Ending Family Homelessness is Housing Families’ mission. We believe helping homeless children and families in Massachusetts is possible by providing quality services to each family member and by expanding affordable housing to those in need.

Children and Parent Services  – we provide unique and holistic programs to homeless children and parents.  Homeless children receive after-school tutoring, individual and group counseling, and summer enrichment activities. Parents receive individual counseling and group therapy, and can participate in Parenting Skills Group, and a Women’s Group.

Keeping Families Housed – Whether a family is facing eviction from their home, or is newly housed after being homeless, Housing Families offers individualized supportive services helping families keep their housing.

Emergency Shelter  – Housing Families shelters are part of the state family shelter system. We help families who have been surviving in extremely stressful and unsafe conditions.  Each family is provided an apartment with private bath, kitchen, and living area. Families receive support services to help them transition to a home of their own.

Low Income Housing – Housing Families strongly believes that increasing the amount of affordable housing is part of the solution to ending family homelessness. As such, we have developed and maintained a number of low income housing opportunities in the Greater Boston area.
