At Housing Families, our commitment to ensuring housing stability has led us to the creation of our annual events. From fundraising efforts to policy discussions with Massachusetts officials, our events demonstrate our focus on achieving housing equity and wellbeing for all.

Young Professionals Advisory Council Events

The Young Professional Advisory Council (YPAC) are young volunteer leaders who partner with Housing Families to learn about housing advocacy, build their networks and community relationships, and grow their professional skillsets, while striving to achieve housing equity and well-being for all.

The Housing Families Young Professional Advisory Council is hosting a silent fundraiser auction and accompanying cocktail reception this July! Join us for this fun event and support housing access and wellness for Massachusetts families. Click here to view the auction & get event tickets.

Legislative Breakfast

Check back here for the 2025 date!

We host this Annual Event with our client, community, and legislative partners to advocate for key policy and legislative initiatives that would improve housing equity and well-being for everyone across Greater Boston.

The Breakfast is presented by our Medical Advisory Committee.

Their focus is to demonstrate how the affordable housing shortage in our region impacts community health, and engage legislators to address the crises we face.

Annual Housing Families 5K

Started in 2020 as a virtual 5K amidst the pandemic, the Housing Families 5K serves as a meaningful way to come together for Homelessness Awareness Week in November. Participants can run, walk, or hike—from wherever they are, or join us in-person to complete the 5K along the Malden River at the River’s Edge Park. The event is followed by an afterparty at The Porch!

This year, the 5K will be held on November 16, 2024. Check back here soon for the registration link!
