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.

Legislative Breakfast

The 2023 Legislative Breakfast is scheduled for April 13th from 8:30-10:30am at Anthony’s of Malden.

Housing Families holds the Legislative Breakfast each spring to give our clients and community a platform to advocate to Massachusetts policymakers for funding and legislation to support health and affordable housing. The Breakfast also provides an update on our housing and health equity efforts across Greater Boston, particularly in Malden, Chelsea, Everett, Revere, and Melrose. This year the Breakfast is presented by our Medical Advisory Committee.

We will be honoring Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo for his leadership in launching the Revere Warming Center and Citizens’ Housing and Planning Association for their advocacy and policy in affordable housing.  

Annual Housing Families 5K: Powered by BOND

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 will be followed by an afterparty at The Porch!

More details for the 2023 5K to come soon! 

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.

YPAC recently hosted a fun and successful Spring 2022 kick-off event. Check back here for more YPAC events!
