Heading Home to Dinner is thrilled to partner with Heading Home to help raise essential funds for their mission.
Heading Home is Boston’s leading provider of housing and support services for families with children and individuals – a champion of innovative solutions that move people out of homelessness.
Safe, reliable housing means more to Heading Home clients than just having a home. It is the foundation allowing them to thrive and lead happy and productive lives.
While homelessness can be invisible, it is the epicenter of the clients’ lives. Loss of a job or illness can quickly force people into homelessness. Trauma experience is often part of the clients’ lives, contributing to their instability and homelessness.
Heading Home provides emergency shelter, transitional housing, permanent housing, and supportive services to homeless and formerly homeless families and individuals in Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, Medford, Quincy, Revere and Somerville. Their supportive services alongside housing helps clients create futures without homelessness. On any given night, their clients include 480+ households living stably with their support in Greater Boston neighborhoods.
Heading Home emphasizes permanent housing attainment and retention because success is most achievable within a permanent home. Research shows that providing housing alongside supportive services is much more effective than just providing one or the other.
